FORMER staff of Parliament Iliesa Raiduduva says the Secretary- General Viniana Namosimalua asked him to join her in prayer which he refused after he was forced to resign on September, 6.

The former civic education officer since 2015 was forced to resign for allegedly leaking the video footage of Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama manhandling Opposition MP Pio Tikoduadua outside Parliament on August, 9.

Mr Raiduduva claimed he was summoned to meet the SG at around 8am on September, 6, where the allegations were put to him and was told to hand in his resignation at 10 am on the same day.

“After the meeting she told us to pray, I didn’t want to pray with her because I was angry,” he said.

Mrs Namosimalua is expected to respond to queries from The Fiji Times sent to her via electronic mail on September, 6, this afternoon.
