THE Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption is working with Interpol to locate a former executive of the Fiji National Provident Fund.
FICAC Prosecutor Shalini Sanmogam yesterday informed the High Court in Suva that documents related to FNPF former general manager Foana Nemani had been forwarded to Interpol.
Ms Sanmogam said Interpol stated that an arrest warrant must be obtained and that New Zealand police would only act on that warrant.
When the case was last called in August, the court heard that Mrs Nemani was away in New Zealand and so was her husband, who is her surety. Mrs Nemani faces abuse of office related charges. She was jointly charged with FNPF former general manager Olota Rokovunisei for allegedly authorising payments for responsibility allowance to each other for the sum of $35,911 and $33,333 respectively without authorisation of the Higher Salaries Commission or FNPF board.
In early February this year, the court granted a separation of trial.
High Court judge Justice Priyantha Fernando adjourned the case to February 20, 2012, for mention to check on the status of Mrs Nemani's arrest.
