Call to step aside

Monday, February 25, 2008

FORMER Fiji Labour Party Senator Ponipate Lesavua believes interim Finance Minister Mahendra Chaudhry must do the right thing and step aside to let the investigation into his tax files be carried out.

Mr Lesavua said Mr Chaudhry was still innocent until proven guilty.

"But for a public officer like him, he should know better and step aside to let an investigation be carried out," he said. Mr Lesavua said the allegations against Mr Chaudhry were very serious.

"So he must not interfere with anything that will be done to find out the truth."

He said if those allegations were true, it would defeat the clean-up campaign motives of the interim Government.
