Coupfourpointfive has been reliably informed from inside the police headquarters that Frank Bainimarama's former Finance Minister, Mahendra Chauhdry, was taken in by the CID for questioning over alleged money laundering.
Chaudhry was being investigated for the past week but police sources had asked Coupfourpointfive to keep it under wraps.
If anything comes out of the investigation, the former Prime Minister and leader of the Fiji Labour Party could well end up being charged and taken to court.
Neither the FLP nor Chaudhry could be reached for comment.
It's alleged Chaudhry, with the help of the Government of India, channeled more than $700,000 into his private bank account in Australia in 2002.
Two million dollars was involved between 2000 and 2002.
The money had been collected by political sympathisers in India.
