The Commission spokesperson Nandani Vandhana says no one has been named in the investigation into the Health Ministry, while an investigation into Fiji National University is also ongoing.

The Fiji Corrections Service also confirmed to the Fiji Sun that FICAC raided its Suva headquarters last week and removed files.

The Fijileaks website has published letters that appear to be from FICAC, recommending charges be laid against the former health minister, Dr Neil Sharma.

Dr Sharma, who resigned on Friday, has said that more detail will come later.

But Ms Vandhana says FICAC won't confirm he is under its microscope.

"We are saying that it's not authentic FICAC documents, so I don't know where they must have got it from and how they must have done it, because we have not been putting those documents out, and we don't know where it's coming from so from our end it's not authentic FICAC documents."
