Common abuse

ABUSE of office was the most common corruption complaint received in 2012, according to the corruption complaints analysis. Last year, 13 cases were convicted and sentenced. The majority involved public officials who continued to engage in corrupt practices such as abuse of office, fraud, embezzlement, larceny, bribery, collusion and conspiracy to defraud government by obtaining property on forged documents, conversion of government resources and funds and obtaining financial advantage by deception.

Man pleads guilty

A MAN who pleaded guilty to four counts of theft was given a suspended term. Sumit Nakul told the Suva court he regretted his actions and would not reoffend. He was sentenced to six months imprisonment suspended for 18 months but remains in remand on a separate charge.
