Widow Amalaini Kanasalusalu Torosi says Government’s decision to pay outstanding police back pay is a huge relief.

Her husband Inspector Ilikimi Torosi retired last year but died two months later.

The back pay was part of a job evaluation exercise in 2004. Officers had received only part of it.

Mrs Torosi, a retired school teacher, said they were grateful to the Government for its thoughtfulness.

Mrs Torosi, 56, said they were informed about the payout by another former inspector Tevita Ralulu. Mr Ralulu is the spokesperson for the ex-police officers.

“This is the best news ever and we really look forward to the payment which I am sure would be in thousands,” she said.

“But sadly that payout is coming after 10 years and my husband is no more.

“He used to talk about the payout with his friends but I never interfered.

“He would always say to leave it to God because justice would be served only by Him.”

The late Inspector Torosi served in the Police for 37 years. He was part of the second batch Police constable recruitment.

He moved up the ranks and was promoted to Sergeant then Inspector.

The couple have four sons. The eldest followed in his father’s footsteps and became a Police officer.

“His prayer has finally been answered and with the payout we will be fulfilling his dream of investing into a land for farming.”
