Two Parliament staff have made claims on social media that they were forced to resign after the video of the alleged incident of the Prime Minister confronting NFP President Pio Tikoduadua within the parliamentary precincts on August 9th this year, was leaked online.

Iliesa Raiduduva and Waisale Tava-tuilagi have both claimed that they were told to hand in their resignation letters last week or they will be terminated.   

Raiduduva says he was there when Tava-tuilagi took the video and they both agreed that the video should only be used for the purpose of decision making and gave the video to the Senior Media Officer on the same day.

He says they were called up by the Secretary General of Parliament and told to resign last Friday because the video was leaked on social media.

Tava-tuilagi claims that he is the one who shot the video and he is being blamed for leaking it.

We have sent questions to the Secretary General of Parliament, Viniana Namosimalua and we are still awaiting her response.
