All allegations of mismanagement and abuse of funds at Vatuvonu Adventist College are being in investigated by authorities.
Minister for Education Rosy Akbar says they have received several allegations against the College trustees and their agents.
Given the investigation, a high court order has been issued for the Ministry of Education to handle the management of the school in the interim.
While the SDA Church has yet to respond to the court orders, they earlier told FBC News, all school funds or Grants are being handled by the school management.
SDA Church General Secretary Pastor Joe Talemaitoga says not even a single cent of the Free Education Grant (FEG) or any other government funds goes to the church.
He then requested that we direct all questions regarding the abuse of funds to the Ministry of Education or the Government department that disburses and audits the funds.
Pastor Talemaitoga adds that the Church was not able to hold a school Board or AGM this school term because the audited accounts for Vatuvonu was not available.
