David Burness and Shaista Shameem

Today Sunday 7th February  2016 Pensioner David Burness passed away after a short illness.

David Burness, his and other senior citizens treatment under Decree 51 orchestrated by the office of the Attorney General on the basis on non factual information provided by the FNPF management was the reason this blog site was launched in 2011.

Some will say the government actions accelerated Davids death, be that as it may, the battle will continue as David would wish.

RIP David Burness, you will be missed by all who knew you.

Unlike some of Fiji’s media we have always attempted to deal in facts, and the fact is, David has gone, but the class action has not, and will not.

This action lives on. In the annals of injustice and arbitrary governance it will stand as witness to the arrogance and inhumanity of corrupt governance. It behoves any person of integrity to see it through to a just conclusion. For David Burness’ legacy and the sake of all those whom he had the courage with his Counsel to represent. History will vindicate David Burness and the Pensioners of Fiji. May his widow Talei and family be comforted at this time of great sorrow.
