SDL to pursue Chaudhry on tax evasion

SDL to pursue Chaudhry on tax evasion
02 JUN 2008

Fiji’s ousted Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase says there is a possibility that his party will take the interim Finance Minister Mahendra Chaudhry’s tax evasion case to the Fiji Independent Commission against Corruption and Police Commissioner.

Qarase told Fijilive that the issue was one of their resolutions at the annual general meeting held on May 23.

He said Chaudhry should be brought to justice.

“The matter was just swept under the carpet. The evidence is so clear,” he said.

Qarase stressed that the interim regime on one hand do not spare people with slightest suspect of corruption and in Chaudhry’s case, it was a white wash.

“Everybody should be treated equally,” he said.

A tribunal appointed by the interim regime had cleared Chaudhry of tax evasion.
