FICAC warns against use of threat

THE Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC) is against individuals who are using the commission to threaten individuals or a party.

FICAC made this clear following continuous statements made to the media by various individuals who said they would lodge a complaint to the commission on certain issues they had raised.

FICAC communications officer Nandni Vandhana said the commission was against such practice.

"We want to tell members of the public and persons saying that, if you have lodged a complaint with the Commission, then if you want to tell the media organisations and so forth, then you can do so," Ms Vandhana said.

Ms Vandhana said the Commission was aware that there were people who used FICAC's name and told people that they had reported certain matters to FICAC.

"We strongly advise against persons that are doing that to get a benefit or be able to threaten another party."
