Solomon Airlines boss suspended by the national carrier board

The Chief Executive Officer of the Solomon Airlines national carrier, Joseph Anea, has been suspended from duty effective from Tuesday.

The Chairman of Solomon Airlines Board, Martin Magga, says Mr Anea is given 14 days to challenge the allegations levelled against him.

Mr Magga would not divulge the reasons behind the suspension. However a Radio New Zealand International correspondent in Honiara says it is understood that the decision was politically motivated.

Mr Anea said several weeks ago that he was expecting to be sacked from the board and that he was at its mercy.

He says he is not indispensable but urged the Board to substantiate and justify the reason for wanting to sack him.
