Probe ordered into Lautoka FA

THE Fiji Football Association has appointed a three-member committee to investigate the affairs of the Lautoka Football Association after receiving complaints from two clubs.

The investigating team will be chaired by Fiji FA vice-president Tarunesh Reddy. The other members are Fiji FA vice-president Jiten Kumar and Darrell Raj Charan.

Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel said they were closely monitoring the affairs of Lautoka soccer after the resignations of the president Shalendra Prasad and his deputy Abdul Khaiyum Rafiq.

Patel said they would have no hesitation in dissolving the association if discrepancies were found.

"The parent body can appoint an administrator to look after the affairs of the district," he said.

"We have done that in the past with other district associations. There are certain issues that have been raised by the clubs which needs to be investigated. There needs to be transparency."

Lautoka Football Association secretary Reginald Gounder said they had requested the parent body to give them time to gather all the information.

"The issues have been raised by two clubs out of the total 34 that are registered," Gounder said.

"It is an internal matter that should have been solved by Lautoka soccer. We have always believed in transparency and will fully co-operate with the investigating team."
