Fareed claims in the Fiji Institute of Accountants website he is listed as FAREED, MOHAMED in the Chartered Accountants section
UPDATE: FIA president Fareed informs Fijileaks that he is on the FIA list and his full name is MOHAMED NOUZAB FAREED. "My full name is Mohamed Nouzab Fareed. I am not a CPP. I cannot sign accounts. Only 41 members in Fiji can sign accounts. According to FIA rules, a CPP or a full member can be the president. On the other hand, you are right. I am school drop out or failed all subject at Year 13. I don’t have a Bachelor’s degree. In other parts of the world, without a degree you can be a Chartered Accountant by doing examinations of the Institute" - Fareed to Fijileaks, 14/2/2015; Fijileaks Editor: We are grateful to Fareed's reply!
