Fiji Sun - - Fiji Today -

Com­plaints against Com­mis­sion­ers of Oath and Jus­tices of Peace topped the Con­sumer Coun­cil of Fiji’s North re­gional list this year. Speak­ing dur­ing a Fiji Me­dia Watch work­shop in Labasa yes­ter­day, Senivesi Ra­soni, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the coun­cil, said it was dis­ap­point­ing. Some were il­le­gally charg­ing mem­bers of the public who sought their ser­vices. Also on the top five were the land­lord Ten­ancy com­plaints where ten­ants have been rais­ing con­cerns on rent re­lated is­sues.

“Please note that your land­lord is sup­posed to give you a writ­ten agree­ment be­fore you en­ter into the premises and when­ever you pay rent you are sup­posed to be given a re­ceipt,” Ms Ra­soni said. The other three top five is­sues were com­plaints about elec­tronic goods, lay-buy sales, and food and drinks. JOSAIA RALAGO Edited by Ranoba Baoa
