The Fiji Corrections Service will open the Labasa Centre Mini Mart at Vaturekuka tomorrow.

This was confirmed by the Corrections Commissioner Lieutenant-Colonel Ifereimi Vasu as final preparations for the opening of the Mini Mart are currently taking place.

Lieutenant- Colonel Ifereimi Vasu said the setting up of the Mini Mart was all part of an initiative to cater for the welfare of the officers and their families at the centre.

Currently there are Mini Marts at Naboro, Suva and Lautoka which are managed by inmate and former businessman Dhansukh Lal Bhikha.

Because of Mr Bhikha’s business expertise and background, the minimart business has grown and thrived over the years.

They have now ventured into real estate and car dealership as well.

It is understood some of the Corrections officer’s wives would be employed at the separate entity along with inmates under the Yellow Ribbon project.

The inmates would be paid the same rates as anybody who is working within any of the Corrections Service enterprise on a daily basis.
