The Permanent Secretary for Finance, New Zealand citizen John Prasad has been asked by the Public Service Commission to submit his formal qualifications and work experience.
Sources say last week PSC Chairman Josefa Serulagilagi summoned Prasad and asked him to present his CV and academic qualifications to PSC as soon as possible.
According to sources Prasad, a very close ally of interim Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, went to military dictator Frank Bainimarama and informed him that Serulagilagi was asking him to submit his formal record.
Bainimarama reportedly told Prasad to comply with the PSC directive.
Prasad claims he has a Masters in Business Administration.
But whether it is from a recognised university is unknown.
Sources say even a formal MBA does not make Prasad qualified to hold the position of Finance Permanent Secretary.
