Lynda Tabuya’s allegations against Prof.Prasad false and defamatory - Iyer

Tabuya makes serious claims against Prof.Prasad

NFP Leader & Deputy Prime Minister, Professor Biman Prasad and Minister for Women, Children & Social Protection, Lynda Tabuya.

National Federation Party General Secretary, Kamal Iyer has today released a statement saying Minister for Women, Children and Social Protection, Lynda Tabuya’s outburst in a recent statement against NFP Leader and Deputy Prime Minister, Professor Biman Prasad is unbecoming of a Cabinet Minister and breaches the good faith obligations of the Coalition Agreement which binds the parties in Government.

A statement released by Tabuya alleges Professor Prasad of misinforming the people, makes serious claims regarding some budget decisions and also alleges NFP of reaching out to the FijiFirst for coalition discussions.

While responding to the statement, Kamal Iyer says NFP will be writing to the People’s Alliance Party about Tabuya’s conduct.

He says Tabuya has recently sent to certain news media organisations a series of allegations against Professor Prasad.

Iyer says these relate to the current controversy over last week’s controversial vote on Parliamentary remuneration.

He says these media organisations have understandably asked for Professor Prasad’s response.

Iyer says the allegations are for the most part false, possibly defamatory and in some cases breach Cabinet confidentiality.

He says Professor Prasad cannot respond to those allegations without also breaching Cabinet confidentiality - which he will not do.

When approached by fijivillage News, Professor Prasad said he will not make any comments.

We have reached out to get comments from Prime Minister, Sitiveni Rabuka.
