The University of the South Pacific  have confirmed that FICAC have advised the Chair of the Council of the University  that they have ceased their investigation into the USP allegations.

These were the allegations submitted by the Vice-Chancellor and President  Professor Pal Ahluwalia to the Executive Committee of the Council.

According to USP the allegations were administrative in nature being purported non-compliance with relevant USP procedures.

The unauthorized reference of the allegations by some USP staff to FICAC was premature as internal investigations provided for by USP policies had not taken place.

FICAC says they respect the decision by the Council to engage an Independent Investigator to carry out its own investigations into the allegations.  FICAC will retain all the records in safe custody and upon request will deliver the material to the Independent Investigator.

Staff and students who have been protesting will be able to make their case to the independent investigators who will be commencing their work next week.

USP’s staff members are encouraged to focus on providing students with the best service to fulfill their aspirations for the qualifications they have worked hard to secure.
