Attorney-General (A-G) and Minister for Justice Siromi Turaga said he would look into the claim made by the Leader of Opposition Inia Seruiratu in a press conference last Friday.

Mr Seruiratu had called on the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance Professor Biman Prasad to step down and for an independent investigation into the allocation of taxpayer funds to the Global Girmit Institute (GGI).

He had stated that the FijiFirst party had received information that $200,000 of taxpayers’ money was used for expenses at the recent International Girmit Conference.

Mr Seruiratu claimed that the GGI was de-registered for failing to provide audited accounts for five years, but had filed for re-registration which was approved on the same day.

He said the registration of such an entity was under the Office of the Attorney-General.
