Former Fiji Cancer Society acting president Dr Tukaha Mua has welcomed the government's move to intervene in the organisation.
On Monday, Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum nullified the appointments of all office bearers in the Fiji Cancer Society following the society's accounts being frozen for months, attributed to an internal dispute over funds.
"The difference between the board and the trustees was irreconcilable," he said, noting the change in office bearers to allow for the account to be opened and keep the organisation running. Dr Mua said he had confidence in the three-member committee headed by former High Court judge Nazhat Shameem, which will probe the complaints within the society.
"Their problem will be that the accounts and administration files of the society are all missing."
He said he hoped the organisation would get back on track soon because it was the cancer patients who suffered while the society was out of operation.
Dr Mua said he would continue to conduct lectures and looked forward to returning to the society in the future.
"As far as my status in the Fiji Cancer Society goes, I am there because of my medical skills, and I don't think my medical skills will be removed from the cancer society because that has nothing to do with the administration and finances of the society."
