Rewa Rice Limited  has dealt with issues raised in the Auditor-General’s reports 2009-2013, says chairman Raj Sharma.

Abuse of office was an issue highlighted before the Public Accounts Committee at Parliament yesterday.

Rewa Rice Limited chairman, Raj Sharma said, they had terminated three staff from 2013 due to mismanagement of company funds and other disciplinary issues.

“We have come up with policies to eradicate such corruption practices and this will help build up the company,” Mr Sharma said.

The issue was brought to light after the company was asked to explain why general ledgers were not backed up when the system crashed causing loss of records.

Mr Sharma responded the point was noted and they had made enhancement on internal controls and the company continued to do so.

He said they had secured back up of data on server, hard drive and CDs.

Mr Sharma said the supply of power from Fiji Electricity Authority to the Dreketi Mill this year would enhance reporting and record keeping, improving clear returns and stock movement.

He said the company was looking at modernised platforms for its milling operations.
