Fiji FA staff suspended over dumping incident

Fiji Football Association has indefinitely suspended a senior staff who is alleged to have been involved in a rubbish dumping incident on a beach along the coral coast.

The staff in a video which has gone viral on social media is allegedly seen dumping rubbish and later picking it up after being comprehended by a citizen who also filmed the incident.

Fiji FA President Rajesh Patel while confirming the immediate action taken after being informed about the video that is circulating on social media said the organisation has always championed the course of protecting the environment in all their programmes and events.

“We have a Social Responsibility team that is regularly engaging with the society all over Fiji for the protection and safeguarding of the environment. Fiji FA will never condone such irresponsible acts," he said in a statement.

Patel said the staff has been advised to provide a detailed report on the issue as well on his personnel capacity.

“Fiji FA has a code of conduct policy and such actions call the immediate attention of the Association to fully exhaust the internal disciplinary process.”

“The staff member has been advised accordingly for the above actions while we will carry out our own investigations to ascertain the facts on this issue before a final decision is made by the Fiji FA Board."
