‘I was told to resign one week after I joined FijiCare and today I’m enjoying the benefit’

Two former Fiji Corrections Service (FCS) officers who were injured in the line of duty each received $50,000 as part of their Total Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance claim.

Petero Ceinaturaga, 52, and Leone Domovonu, 36, were insured by FijiCare In­surance Limited.

Mr Ceinaturaga, who injured his knee while cutting cane with inmates in Ba in 2016, said he was happy with the money.

He thanked FCS Commissioner Francis Kean for his advice to be insured with Fiji Care Insurance Limited.

“I was told to resign one week after I joined Fiji Care and today I’m enjoying the bene­fit,” Mr Ceinaturaga said.

His knee injury affected his work at FCS and he was advised by a doctor to resign.

Mr Ceinaturaga now lives in his village at Navunisole, Tailevu North.

Mr Domovonu, who hails from Matacula, Tailevu North, suffered an eye injury while working at the Naboro Corrections Com­plex.

This injury, he said, affected his brain and ears.

“My work was affected too,” Mr Domovonu said.

He was advised by a doctor to resign.

Mr Domovonu said when he resigned, his wife left him and now he was living with his parents at the village.

However, he said, he prayed that God would help him and guide him to a new and hap­pier life.

He said he was happy to receive the $50K and would use it to help him and the family.
