Reward for informers

WHISTLEBLOWERS who provide information that successfully contributes to prosecution by Fiji's sole tax authority will be rewarded.

This was confirmed by the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority (FRCA) yesterday as it reviews its Whistle Blower Policy.

"A whistleblower that provides information or documents to the authority contributing significantly to the success of the investigation and prosecution by the authority shall be entitled to at least 10 per cent of the tax revenue recovered as a monetary or non-monetary reward," FRCA chief executive Jitoko Tikolevu said.

He said the policy was to facilitate a systematic approach in handling complaints or concerns about FRCA officers, and ensured that a whistleblower could make any disclosure without fear of victimisation or discrimination.

The general public can also call 3243222; 3243666 or 6626777 to make a complaint on tax evasion or customs fraud.
