August 26, 2015 7:12 pm
Opposition MP Semesa Karavaki has questioned the presence of about 100 military personnel who were carrying weapons in Tavua yesterday.
Raising a point of order in Parliament, Karavaki says while the country is promoting tourism, this kind of representative is not good for the country.
Karavaki told Parliament, the military personnel were in Tavua Town at the time a sedition case was called in the Tavua Court.
I’m rising now madam speaker if the responsible Minister can inform this House of what is going on because these people have not conducted themselves have not conducted themselves in any way that would necessitate this kind of response Madam Speaker and it’s bad for the country.
In response, Speaker of Parliament Dr Jiko Luveni says the point of order raised is not related to procedures of the House and as it is addressed at another member of the House, it does not qualify as a point of order.
