INTERNAL DRUG SOLVING

Teachers must report any drug cases to relevant authorities rather than solving it internally.

A parent of a Suva school told BTL that the teachers allegedly confiscated what was believed to be drugs from a student a few weeks ago.

However, to avoid bringing disrepute to the school, teachers decided to solve the matter internally.

Isn’t that breaking the law? Surely two wrongs don’t make a right

HELP VISUAL IMPAIRMENT

A man has been going around the country in search for a specialist who can help get his son’s vision back.

His wife claimed that their son was injured last year while putting up a fence in his school without teacher supervision. BTL was told that in the event, another student pulled the barbed wire, which hit the boy’s eyes, causing the boy to lose vision in both eyes.

The woman said there hasn’t been any report lodged with the relevant authorities yet, however the school has been supporting them all along.

She added the issue must be addressed because as parents they were left hurt and broken. Especially with no help in sight

CAR ‘THEFTS’, A MENACE

Car break-ins in the car park of a popular gym on Williamson Road, Suva, have resumed. One daily gym-goer’s early morning workout turned sour yesterday when he found thieves had stolen most of his belongings by breaking a small window near the front of his Toyota, Hybrid. He says it’s the second time it has happened.

Last year, the same gym car park was notorious for near daily car break-ins.

The thieves became so bold at one point that a lady was physically wrenched from her vehicle and robbed.

Management took steps to address the problem and the break-in stopped for some time.

It appears the thieves have returned with renewed vengeance.

Talk about neighbourhood watch.
