Ministry Updates on Taxi Body Inquiry

In May this year, the Ministry of Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Permanent Secretary who is also the Registrar of Industrial Associations had authorised an inquiry into the Fiji Taxi Association (FTA).

This was to ascertain whether the association, its office bearers and officials were observing the provisions of its Constitution following a dispute over the lawful office bearers of the association.

Permanent Secretary Salaseini Daunabuna said that the inquiry was conducted independently by Resident Magistrate Andrew See under the Industrial Associations Act and it has been found that the current office bearers are the lawful office bearers.

“The officer bearers are Azeem Khan (Acting President), Mohammed Aslam Khan (Vice President), Sammy Ali (Acting Vice President), Rishi Ram (General Secretary), Mohammed Shameem (Assistant Secretary) and Balram Naidu (Treasurer),” Ms Daunabuna said.

“The inquiry also found that Harish Chandra was not lawfully elected as the Interim chairperson.”

Ms Daunabuna added that the current officer bearers held interim positions until elections were carried out.
