Mazey says the investigation on Cricket Fiji is almost complete while Judo members are yet to answer the Commission on alleged misuse of funds.

“I’m not going to hide it now because it is out in the public and people know. Funding that was given for athletes to got to the Pacific Games has been temporarily misused and a large investigation has gone into that.”

Mazey is warning sporting bodies around the country about the importance of accountability and transparency as these issues will not be tolerated.
