THE Commissioner Western's office has denied reports that government had ordered the suspension of development works in Vitogo and Naviyago in January last year.

Acting Commissioner Luke Moroivalu said one only had to travel to Vitogo, Naviyago and Namoli to witness the rehabilitation works carried out in these areas.

"I can show people the work that we've been doing in these areas to prove that there was no such suspension," he said.

"Rehabilitation has been ongoing and we will continue to carry out the work that we have been doing so far."

Mr Moroivalu was responding to queries from this newspaper regarding a document that was allegedly issued from the Commissioner of Western's office in January last year.

The alleged government circular was issued to State departments in the Western Division which included the director of meteorology, general manager Hospital Services Lautoka Hospital, divisional medical officer western, divisional engineer works, divisional engineer roads and divisional engineer water and sewerage.

The document stated that the Prime Minister had directed that all development plans earmarked for the villages of Vitogo and Naviyago be suspended.

"This decision was made upon the negative comments made by the Turaga Tui Vitogo against government," the alleged circular stated.
