A chartered flight with some Asian businessmen flew in to Taveuni on January 12 seeking a deal with the Government.

They used an agent to set up a meeting.

This meeting was not part of Government’s agenda but the meeting request was agreed.

In the meeting, they said they had much money in the bank and wanted to use that in Fiji.

Their presentation was good, Mickey Bird was told. But they failed to produce requested documents to prove that they had worked in other countries.

WORKERS, BEWARE

Despite the warning by the Ministry of Labour that all seasonal worker applications were to be lodged with the National Employment Centre, on the Garden Island a group has quietly made “recruitments”. This is with a promise that it has been officially recognised.

While no fees had been demanded, Mickey Bird has been informed the group wants an agreement signed to have a cut from the wages of workers who go to New Zealand.

PROMISES, PROMISES

People who paid money to a recruiting agent now in Australia to work in Papua New Guinea as security for a mining company have been receiving calls from Australia. These claim that the agent arrives into the country this week.

Mickey Bird has been reliably informed that the agent is actually running away from the law.

You can fool some people but you cannot fool the law.
