Fiji's consumer commission 'committed to high standard'

10:05 am on 7 August 2017

Fiji's Competition and Consumer Commission, formerly the Commerce Commission, has urged members of the public to come forward and lodge complaints if they believe they have been given misinformation by an employee.

A complaint was lodged by a member of the public resulting in the worker being sacked.

The Competition and Consumer Commission officer had provided false information and was dismissed after an investigation.

The commission's chief executive Joel Abraham made it clear that the commission is fully committed to working alongside members of the public to ensure that a high standard of conduct is followed.

He said the commission, an independent statutory body, exists to protect the interests of the Fijian people and ensure fair practices in the marketplace and a zero tolerance for misconduct.

Mr Abraham also said it would invest in professional development training too.
