Chiefs from Kadavu, who are in Suva for their provincial council meeting this week, visited the Kadavu inmates in all Fiji Corrections Service facilities in Suva, Nasinu and Naboro last Friday.

Inmates from the Suva and Nasinu facilities were brought down to Naboro for the day to facilitate the visit.

The chiefs, during the visit, vowed to support their sons and daughters once they were released. And they also agreed to fully support the FCS’s Yellow Ribbon programme.

Corrections spokesperson Kuini Waqasavou said it was a moment of reflection for the 45 Kadavu inmates after the chiefs urged them to do more positive things in life.

Community liaison officer Isireli Dausiga urged the delegation to remember their sons and daughters in the various institutions.

“We are grateful that you have taken the first step to come and visit them. We sincerely hope that you will be able to go back and encourage your respective villages and communities to also think of their relatives that are under our care,”Mr Dausiga said.

“We thank you for your support and hope that we will continue to work together to ensure that when a son or daughter from Kadavu is released, he or she will not return.”

He said FCS hoped and believed that they would become productive sons and daughters of Fiji.

There are currently around 106 inmates from the province of Kadavu incarcerated in the 13 Corrections institutions around the country.

The chiefs thanked the Corrections Commissioner, Lieutenant-Colonel Ifereimi Vasu for allowing them to visit the inmates.
