(L-R) Attorney General of Fiji, Hon Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, Prime Minister of Cook Islands, Hon. Henry Puna, Graeme McNally, Deputy Prime Minister of Samoa, Hon Fiame Naomi Mata’afa, Jenni Lightowlers and Satish Chand.

The USP appointed Commissioners which includes Graeme McNally, Satish Chand and Jenni Lightowlers met with the Sub-Committee of USP Council in Auckland yesterday.

This was regarding the allegations which were laid out in a leaked confidential report which was presented to the Executive Committee of the USP Council in March this year.

The Sub-Committee included the Prime Minister of the Cook Islands, the Deputy Prime Minister of Samoa and the Attorney General of Fiji.

The Commission’s work will be focused on the development and implementation of an action plan to support outcomes for a stronger USP.

The Commissioners through their newly appointed Chair, Jenni Lightowlers note that they will operate independently of the Sub-Committee and USP, and with the delegated authority of Council.

The Commission will work in accordance with the USP Council mandated Terms of Reference.

During the conduct of the Commission’s activities, the Commission expects that the University would continue to operate in accordance with its existing policies and procedures.
