Greedy retailers warned

THE Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption is warning "greedy" business people and "unscrupulous investors" to stop bribing those in public offices be it at the high, medium or low level.

"Don't be either at the receiving or at the bribing end. Similarly, public officers should stop putting their private gains before the welfare of citizens and economic development of their respective provinces," said FICAC spokeswoman Cegu Babana. Ms Babana said giving in to corruption could be down to "deep powerlessness" or simply a "I just want to get on with my day" type of attitude. "As Fijians we see corruption as something that permeates our lives, like air pollution, but we need to think much more carefully about it," she said.
