Board identifies misuse of funds at Rugby House

Maciu Malo
Sunday, February 09, 2014

THE Fiji Rugby Union board members have identified certain funds have been misused at the Rugby House.

Since their appointments last May, the board member under the chairmanship of Filimoni Waqabaca have made some positive changes to the administration of the parent body.

Their major achievements include the securing of the staggering $40m sponsorship deal.

At the same time, the board have also identified discrepancies and loopholes that needed immediate attention.

"We did our review and we identify four areas that needed to be addressed immediately, one of the important areas is the acquittal.

"Acquittal meaning funds that were given to FRU but there was no proper reporting back to those that gave the funds or how it was used.

"These acquittals have been addressed with the national sporting council and that is something we also highlighted."

Waqabaca said the board lottery campaign was another area being identified.

"As with the lottery, I don't have the details with me but we have paid out substantial amount to the winners.

"We are able to generate more revenue and through cost cutting and securing of sponsors we will eventually pay all money dues.

"We inherited this and we are trying our best to see that the winners get their portion of returns from the lottery."
