Illegal Unit Outside of Law

Ousted PM slams anti-corruption unit as illegal -Thursday, March 29, 2007

Update: 10.25am THE qualification and integrity of those involved in the Anti-Corruption Unit is questionable and it is operating outside the law, says ousted Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase.

Mr Qarase made the comment after the anti-corruption unit raided the Public Works Department followed by an instruction from interim Finance Minister Mahendra Chaudhry yesterday.

He said what happened yesterday was not the way to go about investigating the issues.

''There is no legislation for this unit and it is operating outside the law. A commission should be appointed and put in charge of investigating such allegations,'' he said.
