ATTORNEY-GENERAL and Economy Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has been accused of misleading Parliament in an abuse of power allegation where he authorised the payment of $4.6million to ‘propaganda mercenary’ – Qorvis.

The allegation was made by Opposition leader Major General (Ret’d) Sitiveni Rabuka yesterday.

He called for disciplinary action for the abuse of power and breach of procurement regulations. The A-G chose not to respond saying the claims were made from a ‘leaked document.’
