“I spoke to him at the Caucus meeting this morning as well as the Attorney General and brought to their attention the concerns raised and just warned them not to re-offend.”

The Prime Minister had earlier stated that disciplinary measures will be conducted against cabinet members if there is a breach of code of secrecy.

Rabuka had revealed in his inaugural post-cabinet press conference on January 18th that cabinet members are to classify cabinet papers as top secret.
