Attorney General and Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, has clarified that he will undergo quarantine after returning from his medical treatment from Singapore.
The clarification came after rumour-mongering on social media that the AG will not undergo mandatory quarantine requirements.
Speaking during the Virtual Budget Consultation, Sayed-Khaiyum confirmed he is undergoing medical treatment.
“Every single person that comes to Fiji whether it’s a visitor, whether its a diplomat, whether it’s a Minister every single citizen and any single returning resident or even a tourist that wants to come to Fiji has to go into quarantine in Fiji and of course I will be doing that upon my return.”
He also clarified that his treatment is personal and the costs will be borne by him and not the Fijian Government or the taxpayers.
