"According to our records, this company or this person is not a CPP, so they cannot sign off [NFP's account audit]" - Nouzab Fareed; The same could be levelled at Fareed. How did he become FIA President or speaks on FIA's behalf when he is not listed as member in FIA's MEMBERS LIST? Or are there two rules - one for the accountant who audited NFP accounts and another for Fiji Institute of Accountants president Fareed?
Last year Fijileaks approached him to explain the discrepancies in his CV but decided not to proceed with the story. And now he is not even listed as a MEMBER in the FIA's Current Register. If so, how come he was chosen as the new FIA President and was Vice-President, 2014-2015!
