But not stated by the Khaiyum presser today is Sofield's earlier business activities. In the nineties, he is reported to have admitted to bribing the Mayor of Suva to speed up consent for the approval of a condominium site he was in charge of at Queen Elizabeth Drive.
Sofield was struck of by the Fiji Institute of Architects and the site today belongs to the Chinese Embassy.
Worth noting, also, is the pending departure of the publisher of the Fiji Times, Dallas Swinstead, after just five months. He was brought in by owner Mac Patel to help the paper 'cross over' after the forced News Ltd sale.
Owner and publisher have both frothed about the Australian's contribution in re-inforcing the Fiji Times as the country's "most important paper" but many would agree that's an exxageration.
Less enthusiastic to discuss his future is Brigadier General Mohammed Aziz, who is now rumoured to be off all boards and languishing at home after losing favour with fellow conspirators.
