A staff member of the Land Transport Authority of Fiji was assaulted at LTA's Valelevu Headquarters on Thursday and the matter has been reported to the police.

LTA Chief Executive Officer Samuel Simpson says LTA has a no-tolerance policy for corruption, verbal or physical abuse and violence of any kind against their officers.

Simpson says all vehicles are tested by LTA to ensure quality and road-worthiness, as the safety of the Fijian public depends on their ability to ensure these machines are fit to drive on public roads.

He says nobody is above this process and under no circumstance will this process be subverted by threats, violence or bribery.

Simpson says LTA will not comment further on this issue and let the law and due process take its course.

He says LTA was established to provide a safe land transport system for the nation in partnership with stakeholders and the community.
