CLOSED BOOK: GANESHGATE PLOT at the Solomon Islands National University THICKENS as Fijileaks draws BLANK in its hunt for PRINT TECHNOLOGY in Suva that 'printed' and delivered policy books to SINU
A lengthy Fijileaks investigation relating to the raft of allegations against him in Solomon Islands raise some very disturbing questions. Since our series of expose on Ganesh Chand's shenanigans at the Fiji National University that saw him dragged before the Fiji High Court, he has cut all contact with us when, for FORTY years, he was the most eager and reliable informant of our founding Editor-in-Chief. In November 2018 Chand was discharged of abuse of office charges after FICAC prosecutors failed to produce their main witness. A nolle prosequi was filed by FICAC’s senior prosecutor, Rashmi Aslam, who stated that the key witness in the case could not be located as he was overseas. Chand's trial was scheduled to begin from December 3 to 14. Aslam said FICAC was not concluding the matter, however, when the witness becomes available, they would then continue with the proceedings. It was alleged that between November 14, 2012, and July 4, 2013, while being employed as the Vice-Chancellor of FNU, Chand approved payments amounting to $213,905.05 for overseas medical treatment for chairman of the FNU, Filipe Bole, from the university’s funds. Regarding Solomon Islands allegations, Chand, who is currently in Fiji, told The Fiji Times reporter Anish Chand last month that the allegations made against him are 'preposterous, malicious and defamatory'. He said there was no truth to any of the allegations: "None whatsoever." Typically, The Fiji Times ran with his denial story, and the local press are too arrogant to confront him with our evidence. The Fiji press behaved in the same manner, and abhorrently, to our FNU expose until he fronted the Fiji High Court.
