Jalal refuses termination

Wednesday, December 20, 2006

Lawyer Imrana Jalal has refused to accept her termination as board member of the Post Fiji Limited by self-appointed President and army commander Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama that came into effect last week.

The Fiji Times has been reliably informed that Ms Jalal sent an apology to Post Fiji chief executive officer Peni Mau's secretary, Annie Sue, that she would not be attending two board meetings scheduled for December and January because she would be away overseas.

It is understood she is Australia and will travel later to Thailand next year.

A well-placed source said Ms Jalal stated that she chose to send her apologies because she does not recognise any illegal termination of her as board member.

"She asked the chairman of the board Mahendra Patel if he considered withdrawing any of the board meeting papers from her would be complicit in the illegality and they would be held personally accountable in a court of law eventually," the source said.

Public Enterprise chief executive Parmesh Chand said he was aware of Ms Jalal's stand.
