SODELPA Member of Parliament and Opposition Whip Lynda Tabuya says she was not surprised by for­mer Fijian Holdings Limited Group chief executive officer, Nouzab Fareed’s, resignation.

Mr Fareed resigned last Friday, however, he maintained that no wrongdoing amidst allegations of sexual harassment against him.

His main reason for resigning was to save the image of the company, which is listed on the South Pacific Stock Exchange (SPX) and to allow himself the freedom to explain his side of the story.

Ms Tabuya said she was not sur­prised by Mr Fareed’s “defensive comments” since his resignation on Friday.

“This is typical of someone who has been a position of power for so long that they believe they can do no wrong.”

Mr Fareed on Friday had said Ms Tabuya’s involvement in the matter was a popularity stunt trying to in­crease her fan base.

In reply, Ms Tabuya said it was her job as an elected Member of Parlia­ment to highlight issues that needed addressing, especially when it con­cerned workers, youth and women’s rights.

“It was only after my Facebook post highlighting the issue that FHL convened an independent inquiry and the Police called Judy in after a lapse of almost three months,” she said.
