The former CEO of the Fiji Revenue and Customs Service Visvanath Das has denied sending an email to the executives of the FRCS on 5th August, 2019 which is currently being publicly circulated.

According to the screenshot of the particular email, Das is allegedly talking about overstating of government revenue in the National Budget.

When contacted by Fijivillage, Das said the email is absolutely not by him.

He did not want to make any further comments.

We have also asked him whether he will report the matter to police and FICAC as the email being circulated is purportedly saying that Das had sent the email to his executives on 5th August, 2019.

Das is yet to comment on whether he will file a complaint with Police and FICAC.

Fijivillage is currently trying to verify the authenticity of the email.

When we contacted the Acting CEO of FRCS Fane Vave, she said she needs to verify this email before she makes any further comments.

There is no confirmation at this stage on whether Das sent that particular email on 5th August, 2019.

We are awaiting further comments from Vave whose name and email address also appears in that email.
