TWO Fijian nationals will soon face charges of theft by Vanuatu authorities over losses of millions of dollars from the company they worked for.
It has been confirmed that the duo were managers of two Carpenters Group subsidiaries based in Port Vila.
The commissioner's chief of staff at the Transnational Crime Unit in Vanuatu, Ron Tamtam, said the two men allegedly stole the money over a few years.
He said the duo would attend their first court hearing tomorrow.
Mr Tamtam said the two men were caught after an audit found anomalies in the financial statements of the two branches.
He said an audit revealed that one allegedly stole $A600,000 ($F1.06million), while the other allegedly took $A1m ($F1.77m).
"They actually misused the money," Mr Tamtam said in an interview from Port Vila yesterday.
Mr Tamtam said once the auditors noticed the inconsistencies in their financial audit of the two companies, they alerted Vanuatu police.
"The investigations have been completed and now we have all the facts ready to go before court."
According to Mr Tamtam, the two are on bail, with one of their conditions being to report to the police station daily to ensure they do not flee Port Vila.
