FIJI Competition and Consumer Commission chief executive officer Joel Abraham says he has nothing to hide if required to declare his assets and liabilities.

Mr Abraham made submissions to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Justice, Law and Human Rights yesterday on the Code of Conduct Bill.

“Being a public official, I think we understand the job we are getting into — that we will be under public scrutiny because of the role that we have in terms of deciding prices for certain things,” he said.

“It’s not just about me being in the position, it is about ensuring that the systems and processes are proper and whoever comes into the position we are able to hold them to a level of transparency and accountability.

“For me personally, I have no issues in making the declaration — my wife and the kids, there is really nothing to hide.”
