Right motive

Torika Tokalau
Sunday, June 08, 2014

THE Land Transport Authority has placed a zero tolerance policy on corruption.

This was the message from LTA CEO Naisa Tuinaceva to his 250 staff members this week.

Mr Tuinaceva told the staff members if their agenda contradicts LTA's vision, mission and values, then LTA was not a place of employment for them.

"I want to remind all LTA staff to have a right motive and a clear conscience when dealing with customers, deal with the issue within the legal systems and process of the authority, every dealing must be transparent and within the confines of LTA code of practise," he said in a statement yesterday.

"We place customers need as our top priority, for they are the very reason LTA exists and we continuously revise, review and devise a workable system to accommodate customers' demand every day without any malicious work."

Mr Tuinaceva said members of the public should inform the authority and police of any suspicious element of corrupt activities of LTA officials.

He said in the past, staff members implicated had their employment terminated and referred to the relevant authorities for further investigation.

"We want to make it very clear that corruption is totally unacceptable. We don't condone it and there is no place for corrupt people and officials at LTA. We have had cases where staff have been fired on the spot for suspicious corruption work,

"There are members of the public who also try to collude with LTA staff, requesting for special favours to remove their TIN (traffic infringement notice), removal of their vehicle images caught on the speed and red light camera, illegally printing of driver licence without proper procedures and illegally facilitate their taxi permit."
