Concerns have been raised again in the Cuvu draft constitution session by a Fiji National Provident Fund pensioner why their pension rates have been cut as part of the FNPF reform.
The Cuvu resident asked Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum why this is being done to the retired persons.
Sayed-Khaiyum said in the late 1980s and 1990s, experts recommended to review FNPF pension rates which was as high as 25 percent.
However, nothing was done.
The Attorney General said the review of the pension rates was absolutely necessary.
He had earlier stressed that the FNPF decree cannot be challenged in court however the next parliament can decide to amend or repeal the decree if they do not agree with the reform.
He said that decision will depend on the next parliament.
JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED.
Sayed-Khaiyum SHOULD BE REPLACED AS MINISTER FOR JUSTICE AND NEVER PERMITTED TO HOLD THE POSITION AGAIN
PENSIONERS SHOULD NOT VOTE FOR THIS MAN IN THE 2014 ELECTION, THEY SHOULD ALSO THINK TWICE BEFORE VOTING FOR ANY PARTY THAT SUPPORTS HIM
