TI FIJI SAYS CORRUPTION DECLINED AFTER MILITARY COUP
http://www.rnzi.com/pages/news.php?op=read&id=57053

SUVA (Radio NZ International/Pacific Media Watch): Transparency International says corruption in Fiji has decreased since 2006.

The director of the organisation's Fiji arm, Juris Gulbis, told media people's perception of corruption had changed since the interim government established the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption.

Fiji has not been listed among the 178 countries in Transparency International's Perception of Corruption Index since the 2006 military coup because three independent assessments are needed to be considered.

However, Gulbis says FICAC and Transparency International ensure that corruption is not rife.

>>> People are no longer hesitant to bring their concerns and complaints to us. At the end of the day I have to say more and more complaints lodged with us get resolved. More complaints get voiced by the people without fear or hesitation. They come to us and they freely discuss their options. They no longer feel threatened. At the end of the day people get justice.

-- The director of Transparency International Fiji, Juris Gulbis
