ATSET Chair claims he was betrayed by his trustees

June 6, 2018 7:32 pm

Air Terminal Services Employees Trust chair, Jai Dhir Singh claims five trustees went behind his back and filed an Affidavit in the Lautoka High Court against him.

Singh’s post is evident on social media where he has posted on several pages on Facebook making such claims.

He claims he did everything possible to save the ATS employees and did all the work for free except meal money and this is the reward he gets.

Singh has been charged with Contempt of Court for a statement he allegedly made during the ATS strike saga on January 19th.

FBC News understands Singh made a statement at a press conference in Nadi five months ago allegedly making allegations against the Judiciary saying it’s controlled by one Minister.

The ATSET Chair in his latest posting further claims the five trustees have sided with Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and ATS Board Chair Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum in filing the affidavit against him.

Singh claims his posts is to inform the ATS employees about the present status of the Trust.

However, Singh declined to comment due to legal proceedings when contacted by the FBC News.

Singh has also accused the ATSET of becoming a cash cow for FASA and claims that payments are being made with no due diligence or declaration of conflict of interest.

When contacted, Fiji Trades Union Congress General Secretary, Felix Anthony says he’s not aware of such claims being made on social media.

Attempts to contact Lautoka Lawyer Kevueli Tunidau who is believed to have filed the affidavit proved unsuccessful.
