Varman to take legal action over viral video

Suspended Referees Director of Fiji Football Association, Rakesh Varman is pursuing legal action over a social media video of him which went viral on Friday.

The former FIFA badge holder is seen picking garbage along a beach in Coral Coast and the person filming him is alleging that Varman had thrown the rubbish and tells him to do the clean up.

Varman in a social media post stated that he is taking legal action against the person who filmed him and went on say that he and his wife were threatened by the film maker .

He said the video has been portrayed and posted wrongly as this incident happened back in March.

He claims he is not guilty and picked the rubbish in good faith and under duress.

Meanwhile Fiji FA President Rajesh Patel in a statement said they will be conducting their own investigation into the matter and the staff is suspended indefinitely.
