Private View (379)
I WANT to debunk many allegations levelled against AIPF: “only moving ships cause waves...” We have reviewed most allegations and we have concluded they lack substance and reason. None the less, we wish to offer (without prejudice) our take on the topics thus far:
TRANSPARENCY Solomon Islands (TSI) supports the call by the Prime Minister (PM) Manasseh Sogavare warning private companies and individuals who made private arrangements for flights and vessel entry into Solomon Islands without consulting and/or seeking the approval of the Covid-19 Oversight Committee.
IN 2019 a 22-year-old Solomon Islander diagnosed with type 2 diabetes presented to the eye clinic with eye complications of diabetes called neovascularization retinopathy, a severe form of diabetic retinopathy. Her family was able to send her to Australia at that time for the urgent treatment of the blinding eye condition in a desperate bid to save whatever sight she was left with.
Government contracting and procurement is now at a level that should alarm the people of Solomon Islands.
The fallout from last Wednesday’s election of the Secretary-General of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat does not come as a surprise to me. We had been warned that if the Forum leaders did not seek to stick to what has always been an unwritten convention and agreement there would be repercussions.
TRANSPARENCY Solomon Islands (TSI) strongly condemned the alleged stealing of more than $300,000 under police custody, by an officer within the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF).
