Details are sketchy as the sources have been unable to confirm the identity or identities of the officials and which Union they are officials of. The two Unions representing Air Pacific employees are Transport Workers Union and Fiji Airline Pilots Association. But the arrests have been confirmed.
Sources say the officials were picked up by police from their homes last night. Sources have confirmed Air Pacific CEO David Pflieger and the military regime's attorney general Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum have ordered the police to probe officials of the two unions after the leaks caused them acute embarrassment and proved them to be liars.
Coupfourpointfive was tipped off a couple of days ago that Pflieger had ordered all staff to leave computers on last week when they signed off for the day and brought in IT specialists to go through hard drives and emails to find out who leaked documents to us.
A source within the airline said Pflieger has come down hard on Air Pacific's internal IT Dept for their inability to flush out the insiders.
There is even a reward offered for any info leading to the apprehension of this person or persons. It's believed IT specialists have installed software that enables Pflieger to peek into people's desktops at any time to see what they're up to.
More on the arrests when we get confirmation.
