Fijileaks: Our sources claim Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs Robin Nair was given the option to shape up or ship out after he was heard foul-mouthing Bainimarama to diplomats and refusing to work within his remit as permanent secretary; he opted to RESIGN
The call was made by Opposition Leader Ro Teimumu Kepa in a statement issued by her office on Friday.
Ro Teimumu said the recent string of resignations by high profile employees from the Government and its agencies was of concern.
"We have had competent locals resign and fade into the background and we have had expatriates resign, fleeing the country," Ro Teimumu said.
She claimed several high ranking government officials had been transferred without any justification.
"Those who have resigned should not fear and come out clean to inform the public what made them resign. It is your moral obligation to do that," she said.
"The Government and its agencies are public institutions funded by taxpayers of this country. They deserve to know the full truth and not half baked truth and fairytales to print an otherwise glossy picture in the name and game of reforms."
