Now they are calling it free­bies and Hon­ourable Ga­voka is say­ing that next Gov­ern­ment won’t give them free­bies… He should be thank­ful to those civil ser­vants who worked till 4-5am this morn­ing (Thurs­day) from 9am (Wed­nes­day)

Act­ing Prime Min­is­ter and At­tor­ney-Gen­eral Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum re­torted to SODELPA MP Vil­iame Ga­voka who kept on rais­ing in Par­lia­ment that peo­ple were lin­ing up for free­bies and that they have been at Lawaqa Park for CARE for Fiji as­sis­tance for hours.

They are caught in a time warp and un­for­tu­nately their po­lit­i­cal cap­i­tal is caught in that time warp

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum re­gard­ing the Op­po­si­tion

There are still peo­ple who leave on the sly on tourist visas to work there (Aus­tralia and New Zealand).

Em­ploy­ment Min­is­ter Jone Usa­mate re­sponded to SODELPA MP Mere Samisoni who told the house that her house help had gone over­seas for six weeks to work where her hus­band was work­ing for three months. Mr Usa­mate said no one leaves on sea­sonal worker scheme for six weeks or three months. Sea­sonal Work­ers Scheme runs for six months and not for three months or six weeks and that those who leave for such short term may be work­ing out­side of the scheme.
