A chartered accountancy firm has completed its report on an inquiry into suspended Sugar Cane Growers Council chief executive officer Jagannath Sami.
Council executive chairman Jain Kumar says the report will be presented to the council by the end of this month.
Kumar says the inquiry team was to investigate any misuse of funds and abuse of office by Sami during his term in office.
Kumar says the council will receive the report by month-end – after which the report will be presented to the Growers Council Board.
The inquiry into Sami began after he was suspended by the interim government early last year – following the 2006 military coup.
Sami returned as CEO after the High Court ruled in his favour when he challenged his suspension in court.
However, in a dramatic turn of events Sami was hospitalised after he complained of chest pains while being picked up again by the police from the council office and taken in for questioning.
He never returned to the council office.
A few months later Jai Shree Gowander was appointed CEO but resigned two months ago to become the new CEO of the Sugar Research Institute of Fiji.
Council administration officer Sundresh Chetty is now acting CEO.
