CNURA worries over Lilo’s corrupt Practise
Sogavare told the National Express that some senior ministers in the Government have now realised the Lilo had actually misappropriated the tsunami funds are pushing for Lilo’s sacking.
“The ministers also realise that the actions I took in sacking Lilo from my government was justified and are now pushing for Lilo’s sacking as well,” said Sogavare
He however would not say which ministers in the Dr Derek Sikua’s Government are demanding Lilo’s sacking.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Prime Minister’s Office flatly denied Sogavare’s claims.
The spokesman adds that the allegations are not new and Sogavare raised them at the height of the lobbying leading up to the motion of no confidence and the subsequent election of the Prime Minister.
“Lilo actually went out publicly in the media and explained his side of the story and unless there is an official report from the Auditor General’s Office to the effect of actual misappropriations of any funds by Lilo when he was Finance Minister, the allegations are all motivated by politics,” said the spokesman from the Prime Minister’s office.
