Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says false information spread by a few, taints a bad image of the entire organization.
Speaking to senior education officers in Pacific Harbour Sayed-Khaiyum highlighted a few cases whereby emails were circulated giving out false information to the public.
Sayed-Khaiyum says this is unacceptable as it creates unnecessary administrative interventions and makes the Education Ministry look unprofessional.
“Some administrative officer in your Labasa Office sent out an email a few days ago saying the PS of Education is coming to one of the schools in Nasekula and is going to meet up all the iTaukei teachers – there is no such directive from him, his assured me. But this administrative staff in your Labasa Office saw it fit to send such an email. As a result of which I received so much correspondence from people saying why the government is making this discrimination.”
Sayed-Khaiyum says similar discriminatory email was sent before the USP open Day.
“A few weeks ago before the open day for High Schools at a University – there is another email that was circulated by somebody from the western division – saying the western students cannot go to USP’s Open Day. We again checked – I had the VC from USP saying why you discriminating against us. I checked with PS he said he did not give such a directive – somebody went on their own volition and decided to send such an email.”
Sayed-Khaiyum says this matter will NOT be tolerated and will be properly investigated and necessary actions will be taken.
