The Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption is now investigating Ba’s former Special Administrator, Arun Prasad for alleged corruption.
FICAC has refused to comment any further on the matter.
Acting Minister for Local Government, acting PM and AG, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum revealed on Monday that Prasad had been relieved of his duties effective immediately.
Last week Khaiyum intervened to stop the Ba Town Council’s squatter upgrading project at Clopcott street, Ba.
Prasad is alleged to have abused his powers to get waivers and discounts on town rates for properties he and his family owned.
Prasad has denied the allegations.
