Now, sources close to the Solankis' claim that Ramesh Solanki presented in court he had no money under his name and that the company was owned by his three daughters and ownership documents were allegedly backdated which meant Josephine Solanki got nothing from him despite being married and worked daily at their factory United Apparel Fiji Ltd for 15 years of their marriage. Even today, sources claim, he is allegedly hiding his wealth behind his three daughters in case Josephine Solanki makes a claim. Ramesh Solanki was very close to Sitiveni Rabuka (1997-1999); Laisenia Qarase (2000-2006); Bainimarama (2006 to date). Bainimarama gets all his suits done at Solankis'. Khaiyum appointed one of Solanki's nephew as PSC Board Member. Fijileaks could not obtain a comment from Ramesh Solanki.
Fijileaks: This is one of those employers that leads the campaign for the minimum wage to be kept well below the poverty line and over the years succeeded. A $2.32 an hour minimum wage for workers now, with Wages Council's no longer in existence. They have succeeded with previous governments keeping the minimum wage well below $2. They continue to claim business as bad but personally do exceptionally well, if the allegations levelled against them by Josephine Solanki, is true.
Why is this allowed in Khaiyum's Fiji?
