Party targets right body

The Fiji Human Rights Commission's independence can be compromised by the election hopes of a political party, the Citizen Constitutional Forum says. Forum executive director Reverend Akuila Yabaki made the comment yesterday after the Prime Minister's Office criticised the commission for trying to bulldoze its agenda by pressing for the Government's reply to the Affirmative Action Programs investigations.
PM's Office chief executive officer Jioji Kotobalavu had accused the commission of trying to push a political agenda when it insisted that Government make its reply on the report available by March 25. Mr Yabaki said the commission did not need permission from Mr Kotobalavu to release its report to the public. He said the SDL Government was trying to delay the report because it was aware the report would damn its Affirmative Action programs for having flouted the law.
Mr Taoi, an ambitous individual, is well-schooled in commerce and misleadership by echoing the talking-points of S.D.L party. Messr Jo Taoi, is also guilty of instigating unsubstantiated rumours about the effects of the Army Commander's Truth Campaign.
S.I.F.M believes it is unfortunate that, this pillar of the Indigenous Fijian Commerce Association has defiled the cardinal rule about business, which is non-political commentary. Neglecting their fiduiciary role of giving free financial advice to native Fijians as well as, their uphill task of spreading the knowledge of wealth building and distribution in Fiji's poverty stricken areas.
