Parliament of Fiji Sectretary-General Viniana Namosimalua.

 

Nine Members of Parliament, from both sides of the House, are believed to have been implicated in a Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption investigation.

Secretary-General to Parliament Viniana Namosimalua lodged the complaint to the anti-corruption agency, alleging that some MPs were abusing sections and guidelines of the Parliamentary Remunerations Act.

When asked yesterday, Ms Namosimalua said she did not wish to comment.

FICAC confirmed they would finalise investigations into the accommodation and allowance saga in the next few days.

The commission also confirmed that the suspension of the main opposition party would not impede their investigations.

While FICAC has not confirmed who the MPs are, it is believed Ms Namosimalua has named nine in her complaint.

It is alleged that those allegedly involved had claimed for travel and accommodation allowance that does not match their current place of residence.
