Jail term for man, 57

THE High Court in Suva yesterday sentenced a 57-year-old

former employee of Save the Children Fiji — who stole

more than $40,000 — to four years imprisonment.

Florence Peterson stole $47,191 between January 1 and

December 31, 2006 while employed as a finance

administration officer. Peterson was sentenced

by Justice Paul Madigan who said the accused was

responsible for the preparation and payments of wages

into the accounts of individual staff members.

An audit revealed cash cheques were written for

an amount more than the total of the individual

staff members' salaries and after the staff members's

accounts had been credited, Peterson would retain the cash surplus.
