Ok...restorative justice is a good thing, but the way this illegal regime are so into themselves in their own sickening self-promotional ways, it's nauseating.
While unemployment increases, the so-called brilliance of the military regime are thinking of soon accepting ex-prisoners into the civil service "if they meet the qualifications and skill requirements of advertised position."
Maybe before they do that, they can publish a list of ALL current and soon to be ex-prisoners we have in our prisons, with their qualifications and skills that may suit any civil service positions. However, why can't these ex-prisoners start from the bottom first like everybody else (like toilet cleaning in a civil service office), especially since they were given the opportunity in the first place NOT TO WRONG society but chose to do so anyway.
Yes, they may have been reformed and deserve a second chance, but giving it to them on a silver platter is not the way to do it. Because by doing so, they will be offending other society members who have not done any wrong, but will have to be put second on the list because the military regime want their opposers to see what "GOOD" (not!) they are doing for those who have wronged our society by giving them a chance in the civil service.
Is this a set-up for when the military regime become ex-prisoners themselves one day? hmmmm...anyways...
MERRY XMAS EVERYONE AND A PROSPEROUS 2010 TO ALL...LET FREEDOM COME!
From Fijilive - Ex-prisoners will soon be accepted into the public service if they meet the qualifications and skill requirements of advertised positions.
Public Service Commission chairman Josefa Serulagilagi said this will be done on a case by case basis and upon the recommendation of the Commissioner of Prisons.
Serulagilagi made the comment while at the Prison Services Excellence Awards which is being held in Suva.
“..And in accordance with government’s vision to reform the civil service, your department has done exceptionally well in the area of capacity building, the commercialisation of prison industries and the enhancement of public engagement.”
“We are all aware that Prisons and Correctional Services are defined by legislative actions, and in this regard, the Prisons and Corrections Act of 2006, was a milestone achievement in modernising the service,” Serulagilagi said.
He added that the Yellow Ribbon Program, an innovative approach at rehabilitating prisoners by increasing public awareness and acceptance of ex-prisoners and their issues, was a breath of fresh air which took Fiji by storm.
