ATHLETICS Fiji general secretary Maciu Koroitamana has refuted claims that Albert Miller was prevented from leaving the country.

Radio had reported Athletics Fiji president Miller was prevented from leaving the country to attend a meeting with the Oceania Athletics Association.

Koroitamana said the reports were a lie and there was no proof that the incident took place.

"The meeting with the OAA is scheduled for March," he said.

"The reports that Albert was stopped at the airport are assumptions and a lies and those who aired the report on radio failed to clarify the incident with the right people."

He said the matter would be further pursued.

"We will take this up with the higher authorities because the intention was clearly to tarnish reputations."
