It was the first let­ter he had ever writ­ten to a Let­ters to the Edi­tor col­umn and it came out a win­ner.

Jus­tice Mo­hammed Ajmeer put pen to pa­per, on be­half of the Fiji Hu­man Rights and An­tiDis­crim­i­na­tion Com­mis­sion to re­fute the con­tents of a let­ter writer that had ques­tioned the com­mis­sion’s de­ci­sion to do­nate to­wards the Prime Min­is­ter’s Cy­clone Re­lief Fund.

Jus­tice Ajmeer said he had never writ­ten any let­ter to any news­pa­per, but was asked to do so by the Com­mis­sion. The let­ter won him Let­ter of the Week and a brand new Parker Pen. The com­mis­sion was ques­tioned by Dan Urai over its do­na­tion of $10,000 to­wards the re­lief fund for Cy­clone Win­ston vic­tims which was taken from their 2015 Bud­get.

“The Com­mis­sion had done it be­fore and we thought to do­nate again as it was for th­ese cy­clone-hit peo­ple.” He never dreamed he would win the Parker pen and said he was happy to have been awarded it.
