NFP Leader, Party ‘do not con­done use of word curse by Qereqereta­bua’

Fiji Sun - - Parliament - ILAIJIA RAVUWAI Edited by Percy Kean

Na­tional Fed­er­a­tion Party leader Pro­fes­sor Biman Prasad says nei­ther he nor the party con­done the use of the word “cursed” in a re­cent post by an NFP Par­lia­men­tar­ian Lenora Qereqereta­bua.

It is un­der­stood that Ms Qereqereta­bua had writ­ten on her Face­book post at­tack­ing Fi­jiFirst MPs.

Ms Qereqereta­bua had writ­ten on Face­book “that the per­son who shot the video of the Prime Min­is­ter of Fiji phys­i­cally as­sault­ing a mem­ber of the Op­po­si­tion was yes­ter­day told to ten­der his res­ig­na­tion. He worked for the Par­lia­ment of Fiji”.

She wrote “Fi­jiFirst MPs you have de­prived an hon­est man his liveli­hood be­cause he chose right and jus­tice. He is the sole bread­win­ner of his fam­ily sup­port­ing his mother. But your dic­ta­to­rial lead­ers said he should suf­fer for his hon­esty.”

Ms Qereqereta­bua wrote, “may you; Alex, Mere­seini, Inia, Semi, Se­lai, Ash­neel, Jone, Ali­pate, Osea, Voreqe, Ro­hit, Ma­hen, Praveen, Veena, Alvick, Rosy, Aiyaz, Ifer­eimi and all in your co­hort and your de­scen­dants for­ever be cursed for your choices”.

Pro­fes­sor Prasad said that “he was no­ti­fied of the post. “She (Lenora Qereqereta­bua) has re­alised that this is not what she should have writ­ten and it took it out of her post,” Pro­fes­sor Prasad said.

The Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment has since edited her post. The Na­tional Fed­er­a­tion Party has not revealed whether any ac­tion will be taken against Ms Qereqereta­bua.
