Fiji military goes to Supreme Court to keep Auditor General out of regimental funds

7:30 am on 13 September 2004

Fiji's military is to take its case against allowing the auditor general to audit its regimental funds to the Supreme Court.

The auditor general took the military to court in the late 1990s for refusing him access to the accounts of the regimental funds.

The High Court ruled in his favour but the military appealed against the decision.

The Fiji Court of Appeal upheld the High Court decision and also ruled in favour of the auditor general.

The Daily Post reports that the military is now taking the issue to the Supreme Court which will hear its appeal in a session later this month.
