All To Be  Revealed  Today: Singh

Jai Dhir Singh, former chairman of Air Terminal Services Employees Trust, is a man on a mission.

Today, he says he will reveal all on the much-talked about unaccounted $5.78 million.

Mr Singh, an engineer by profession, is keen to clear the air.  He said:“We have decided that it’s time to explain to everyone.

“We will be having a full media conference today at 2pm and we will show everything that has happened.”

The money is dividend payout to workers through the trust since 2007.

Mr Singh, who shares his time with a business concern in Australia and his home here, flew into Nadi International Airport two days ago.

Mr Singh said he had come into the country to see the ATSET management and to clear the air on the money.

“I have been slung so much mud over this ATS saga and in particular the money, so I am going to once and for all show you all what is being asked.”

Two weeks ago, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama told ATSET to come clean about the whereabouts of the $5.78 million.

“They (ATSET) are saying they weren’t paid the money but we have receipts showing that they have been paid consistently over the years except for the year when the accident to the airplane had to be paid for.

“Otherwise, every year ATS has paid out dividends to ATSET.”

Controversy flared after Viliame Finau, a trustee claimed that workers had not received any dividend from 2007 to 2015.

But receipts sighted by the Fiji Sun showed the money was paid to ATSET.
