Fiji Rugby Union CEO on leave, three terminated


Fiji Rugby Union chief executive John O’Connor has voluntarily taken leave while the contracts of three staff members were terminated last week.

This follows the discovery of certain breaches of internal processes which prompted the FRU Board to bring forward an audit that was scheduled for later on in the year as part of operations.

FRU Chair, Commodore Humphrey Tawake said they’ve taken the proper steps in terms of good governance.

He said O’Connor volunteered to take leave to allow for the process to happen seamlessly.

FRU Manager Operations Sale Sorovaki is now the acting CEO until further notice.
