Why are the FNPF and Attorney General so afraid of a group of  aged pensioners who have decided to make a stand with regard to their human rights and for what is rightfully and legally theirs – a pension until they die, and why are they saying that it has a political angle – or is there something more sinister here, that the FNPF members have not been made aware of?

The Attorney General has stated that “an independent inquiry into    mismanagement of the Fund is not necessary”    He goes on further to say “what are you going to inquire”?     Perhaps he might like to dismount his high horse,  to consult with the owners of the Fund,  who are the members and see what their opinion might be  instead of making arrogant and condescending statements such as this. What does he think we want to inquire about – the colours of a rainbow ?

Furthermore, we definitely do not think it ‘laughable’ that the President of Fiji does not have the jurisdiction to appoint a commission for an independent inquiry with regard to FNPF.

None of the above is laughable, as the Attorney General appears to think – it is a national tragedy!

Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living & Dying says:

“Honour all those who suffer and know that you are neither separate from nor superior to anyone”

Whilst Shakespeare said the following:
“the quality of mercy is not strained
It droppeth as gentle rain from heaven upon the place beneath
It is twice blessed
It blesseth him that gives and him  that takes”
