The Land Transport Authority board chairman Vijay Maharaj says they will investigate claims that LTA notices sent to people still carry Naisa Tuinaceva’s alleged signature.

Mr Tuinaceva, resigned as chief executive officer of LTA in September, and took his outstanding three-month leave which expires on December 31.

Aptinko Vaurasi is acting CEO.

A man received a warning notice dated December 7, 2016, and allegedly signed by Mr Tuinaceva, over traffic infringements.

He wished to remain anonymous but he questioned why Mr Vaurasi did not sign the notice in his acting position.

He said: “The letter indicates that LTA officers are not properly aware of their situation and who they are currently working under as Mr Tuinaceva had resigned months back while Mr Vaurasi is filling in the position as the authority’s acting CEO.

“It is very unprofessional and void to witness a letter which is signed by a former CEO and still sent to drivers as traffic infringement notices, etc,” he said.

The Fiji Sun cited a copy of  the notice.

Mr Maharaj said: “The issue is an operational matter and we are investigating to look into the reason for the notices being sent by Mr Tuinaceva.

“I can make further comments only when I get my feedback from the operational team at LTA,” Mr Maharaj said.
