CEO RE­COV­ER­ING

Fiji Sun - - NATION -

Fiji Air­ports Chief Ex­ec­u­tive and Fiji Pine Group Chair­man Faiz Khan is re­cov­er­ing at the Lau­toka Hospi­tal.

Ac­cord­ing to a se­nior ex­ec­u­tive at the Fiji Pine Group Mr Khan had suf­fered from an ill­ness and had been ad­mit­ted at a pay­ing ward late last week.

Two se­nior ex­ec­u­tives from Pine Group and Pine Trust Com­pa­nies have re­quested for a vis­i­ta­tion to Mr Khan but were ad­vised from a close fam­ily mem­ber that vis­i­ta­tion was not per­mit­ted.

The two ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers also re­ceived con­fir­ma­tion that Mr Khan was re­cov­er­ing well at his hospi­tal bed.

SEX­UAL OF­FENCES

It seems like once again sex­ual of­fence cases have taken a spike in the list of cases be­ing called be­fore the Courts.

Yes­ter­day, more than 15 ap­peal cases were listed be­fore the Fiji

Court of Ap­peal which were of sex­ual of­fences rang­ing from rape, sex­ual as­sault and in­de­cent as­saults.

How are we as a com­mu­nity/so­ci­ety try­ing to stop these of­fences that leave trauma and psy­cho­log­i­cal ef­fects on vic­tims and their fam­i­lies? Some­thing to think about!

AN­I­MAL SANC­TU­ARY

It’s about time that we look af­ter our pets, be­cause they have con­vened a meet­ing to dis­cuss an an­i­mal sanc­tu­ary for them­selves. Maybe?

SCHOOLS RE­OPEN­ING

BTL readers now know that school is just around the cor­ner and par­ents know and un­der­stand that some of their chil­dren might need new pairs of uni­forms and shoes. This is be­cause their chil­dren have just been eat­ing away the last cou­ple of months apart from staying on course for their stu­dents.

Be­cause the tuck shop was al­ways open at their homes
