FIVE days after Government revealed that “certain matters” relating to the Grace Road Church were currently being handled by the Employment Ministry and police, Minister for Employment Parveen Kumar told The Fiji Times that matters involving the Group have been “settled”.

Mr Kumar, however, did not disclose what the “certain matters” were and how they had been “settled”.

“Those matters that were brought to the ministry have been settled,” he said. “There are no more pending cases before the ministry (about Grace Road).

“You can take it from me.”

In a statement released on Saturday night, Government said because matters were before the two institutions, due process must be allowed to take its course without the interference of Government comment.

The Government statement was released two days after international media outlet Al Jazeera’s 101 East television program released a documentary titled, Escaping Korea’s Pacific Cult’ which focused on the operations of the Grace Road Church in Fiji and Korea.
