The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission is expected to wrap up their investigation into the Lagilagi Housing project in three months’ time.
Chief Executive Joel Abraham says teams have been deployed to conduct house to house visitation, speaking to residents to ensure that all issues affecting people and their families are covered.
Abraham says they have received over 100 complaints so far.
He adds they will also be seeking technical assistance during the investigation phase.
“Once we look into the Lagilagi housing project – we also look at all facets of Lagilagi Housing so it’s not that today we dealing with consumer complaints and tomorrow we come for building complaints and later we come for some other complaints.”
The Government had ordered FCCC to carry out an investigation into the affairs of the People’s Community Network who was tasked to manage the Lagilagi Housing project.
The order came following complaints received from customers on the unsatisfactory delivery of the project.
PCN was given $12.7 million by the Government for the project, however, work was not been delivered as promised.
