We are currently trying to speak to FICAC.

Saneem was suspended by President, Ratu Wiliame Katonivere on the 19th of last month on the advice of the Constitutional Offices Commission in accordance with section 137(4) of the Constitution of the Republic of Fiji.

The Attorney General had said the Commission received a complaint of misbehaviour warranting the removal from office of Saneem.

Siromi Turaga confirmed that the Commission resolved at its meeting, that the complaint needs to be investigated by a Tribunal pursuant to section 137(3)(a)(i) of the Constitution.

Turaga said Saneem is suspended pending the appointment of a Tribunal and subsequent investigation into the complaint made. Saneemโ€™s suspension was with full pay.
