The former Airports Fiji Ltd CEO, Ratu Sakiusa Tuisolia, says his acquittal has lifted a huge burden off his back.
Tuisolia was cleared by the Fiji High Court yesterday.
He told FBC News the charges have been held against him for four years but he'd maintained his innocence from day one.
Tuisolia was charged by the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption on three counts of fraudulent conversion and three counts of keeping false records.
He says he was always confident based he'd be cleared the ruling would go his way saying it should never have made it to the Fiji High Court.
Tuisolia believes the investigation was raised by certain disgruntled businessmen who did not have their way with him when he was CEO of AFL.
He says he does not want to comment at this stage on the independence of the Fiji judiciary except to say that he respects the judges decision and was happy to be acquitted.
