Car Parts ‘Scam’

An alleged scam in­volving the mysterious disappearance of car parts at the Port of Suva has been uncovered.

It is a significant breakthrough by the Fiji Ports Terminal Limited (FPTL) which has been trying to solve this mystery.

FPTL’s chief executive officer, Hasthika Dela, said yesterday their workers had been blamed in the past.

“The finger was always pointed at our employees and now that we have evidence we are relieved. It’s not our employees,” he said.

The evidence, he said, was cap­tured by their CCTV cameras which were installed two years ago.

On June 4, a car importer lodged a complaint with FPTL that “body kits” from their cars had been re­moved.

Body kits are the bottom plates of old model cars. FPTL carried out comprehensive investigations to identify the responsible parties by going through the CCTV footage.

Mr Dela said they were surprised that employees of vehicle deal­ers were allegedly removing parts from vehicles belonging to other car importers.

“We have clearly identified the re­sponsible party for these incidents and all their details have been sub­mitted to Fiji Police to carry out further investigations,” Mr Dela said.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said last night she was still trying to get confirmation.

Mr Dela said according to the FPTL staff, the report had been lodged with the Totogo Police Sta­tion in Suva.

“The footage will be shown as evi­dence tomorrow (today) to the Po­lice,” he said.

The president of the Used Motor Vehicles Association Irshad Jan said he would only comment later on the matter.
