June 25, 2015 1:16 am
The sentencing of Feroz Jan Mohammed and others may not be the end of the road for the Fiji Independent Commission against Corruption – which investigated the $3 million scam.
The saga came to a conclusion yesterday with all 4 perpetrators handed various prison terms – including 1 suspended sentence.
However, FICAC has confirmed it is considering further action on the Proceeds of Crime – in relation to Ba businessman, Feroz Jan who siphoned $3.1 million from the then Department of National Roads.
Under the Proceeds of Crime Decree Act 1997 and a 2012 Amendment Decree, the State – through the courts – can seize property which is deemed to have been procured with illegally obtained monies.
Meanwhile, Mohammad’s family has confirmed he will appeal his eight- year prison term.
