Did you know?

Consumers Fiji had this to say on their Facebook page yesterday.

“Bailiffs do not have the right to force their way into

your home to seize your goods. They only have the right to peaceful entry.”

This means they cannot use force to enter your home. You do not have to let the bailiff into your house.

Bailiffs are well aware of their limited powers and may use

variety of different means to gain entry. Remember, you are

still the owner of your house. Do not fall into their tactics to gain entry.

Stop this, taxis

Regular traveller reports taxis have taken to parking their vehicles at the bus stop at Khalsa Road, Nasinu.

Bus drivers have to stop their buses out on the road for the passengers, which is very dangerous for people and especially kids.

Now where are all those Police officers on their shiny new motorcycles?

Labasa challenge

Never a dull moment when it comes to chiefly titles, it seems.

A member of the Wasavulu clan in the chiefly village of Nasekula Village and home of the newly installed Tui Labasa, Ratu Jone Qomate, is now challenging the installation.

BTL has been reliably informed that the letter has been forwarded to the iTaukei Lands and Fisheries Commission(TLFC).

Also another letter, which has been written by the kingmaker on behalf of vanua of Labasa and Qoibau, is challenging the protocols used.

BTL understands that the kingmaker is trying to get signatures of more than 60 per cent of the members of the chiefly clan and Qoibau before it is forwarded to the Roko Tui Macuata and then to the TLFC.

TLFC will only act if it receives the letter from the Roko Tui Macuata’s office.

Choosy taxi drivers

You don’t have to drive far to find some taxi drivers think the rules of the road do not apply to them. Especially, if all those Police officers on their shiny new bikes are nowhere to be seen.

Latest from our taxi complaints department: Some people are calling out to LTA and the Police to tell taxis at the Suva Bus Stand to do their job and stop being selective. Some always have the excuse that they are waiting for a passenger.

But truth is they do not want to take short runs say one of those calling this in: If drivers are choosy, their PSV licence should be taken away and given to another driver who is ready to serve all passengers, the unhappy one suggests.
