South Korean Police officers who are in the country will interview every Grace Road Group employee who is a Korean national.

During the one-on-one interview employees will be asked whether they want to continue living in Fiji or return to South Korea.

Senior Police officers, who are familiar with the interview process, have revealed to Fiji Sun that those Korean nationals who wish to continue staying in Fiji would do so as long as they adhered to local laws and did not breach their visa conditions. Those who chose to return to South Korea will be escorted back home by the South Korean Police officers.

The Fiji Police Force is leading the charge in this and is assisted by South Korean Police officers who arrived in the country earlier this week.

Grace Road Group has been marred by allegations of slavery and its founder, Reverend Shin Ok-joo, was arrested at Incheon Airport in South Korea, where she is facing investigations. This has had next to no impact on the business operations of Grace Road Group in Fiji.

In Fiji, Grace Road Group acquired a 50-year agricultural lease for rice farming and organic farming. They grew their business and went on to open restaurants, a construction company and salons.

Daniel Kim, a son of the founder, was recently taken in for questioning by Police, but was released without any charges laid against him.
