I did a quick Internet search of unethical accounting practices in Fiji, and I was able to find several articles for you. Here are brief descriptions of each of the pages I've included in the Sources section below:

  • Go to www.adb.org for a report by the Asian Development Bank titled "Accounting and Auditing Practices in the Fiji Islands." This report lists reasons why foreign investment in Fiji is low, including the fact that the Agriculture Ministry misused $8 million.
  • The link to www.unpan1.un.org is to a 2001 report by the UN National Integrity Systems about government corruption in Fiji.
  • The final site in the Sources (www.oag.gov.fj) is The Report of the Auditor General of the Republic of the Fiji Islands.

Believe it or not, I was able to find the Fiji government's Public Service Commission 2007 Training Handbook. You can read it at http://www.itc.gov.fj/docs/ctd_training_handbook-2007.pdf

From all of these sources, you should be able to find a case to write about. Good luck!
