FNPF worker sacked

THE Fiji National Provident Fund has terminated a staff member for allegedly cashing members’ cheques.

FNPF chief operating officer Jaoji Koroi said yesterday the incident was an isolated one and did not reflect the conduct of FNPF as a whole.

“Yesterday, we terminated the staff concerned, who will now face the full brunt of the law. The fund takes seriously its fiduciary duties to members and we had to act immediately to safeguard our membe�rs’ interest,” Mr Koroi sa�id.

“This incident does not reflect the commitment by the FNPF board and staff to protect and safeguard members’ hard-earned retirement savings.”

He said the fund would honour all member payments and assured members that all payments due to them would be paid out.

Mr Koroi confirmed two other incidents involving members of the public who impersonated members to collect FNPF cheques. These cases are with police.

“We reiterate that the fund has completely reviewed our cheque collection process to ensure that all cheques are paid to the rightful owners/members.

“We call on members to pick their Severe TC Winston cheques. There are more than 2000 uncollected cheques.”
