Malaita Ma’asina Forum (MMF) president is calling on RAMSI and police to arrest those involved in the recent bech-de-mer saga or else they will apply for a peaceful protest.
Speaking to this paper last week, Charles Dausabea said police and RAMSI has to make arrest of those suspected in the issue of the two ton beach-de-mer that was removed from the ministry of fisheries eight months ago.
“I kindly urge the acting police commissioner and her executive with RAMSI to act urgently to arrest those involved in this saga or else we will apply to stage a peaceful protest.
“The way in which police has dealt with this issue clearly shows corruption and incapable leadership within the force.
“If RAMSI can arrest me before finding evidences to support their case, then why not arrest those involved in this beach-de-mer which has all the evidences readily available before their eyes?” Dausabea questioned.
Dausabea said if police is not arresting those involved, they will apply to stage a peaceful protest.
The Forum president said all citizens of this country and especially resources owners of the beach de mer products need to know where these two tons of beach de mer has gone.
“These products cost millions of dollars that should have benefited people in terms of social services. So why hideaway such product. I urge the government and police to come out clear. We are not fools. If you fail us then it might as well be right to move out from the ruling and leadership roles,” Dausabea added.
He also stressed that police must not stop them if they apply for the peaceful protest.
Adding that all citizens in this country have the right to protest and call on police to stop their nonsense attitude to deny people’s right to stage peaceful protests.
“Over the past years, police has denied the rights of people to protest by not giving them the permission. So as you see, all the illegal riots are happening because police has turned down all our applications for peaceful protests.
“This has caused anger to people and as a result they turn violent instead. So I urge the acting police commissioner and RAMSI not to stop anyone to stage peaceful protest because people have the right to voice their concerns,” Dausabea said.
