COCONUT CRAB BAN REMINDER

BTL readers are reminded that a ban on the consumption of coconut crab, considered a delicacy, is still in place.

The ban has been in place since 2017.

BTL has seen the delicacy being consumed despite the ban.

The Ministry of Fisheries said in a statement that the coconut crab was classified an endangered species on March 28, 2017, under the Endangered and Protected Species (Amendment) Act, (No. 10 of 2017).

TEACHERS ‘PAID IN FULL’

The Ministry of Education has clarified that teachers were paid in full last week.

Responding to online bloggers, the ministry refuted claims that some teachers were not paid last week. It says the claims on social media are not true.

It has advised, however, that if teachers were not paid correctly or dispute what they were supposed to get, then they are to visit Marela House to notify ministry pay clerks for adjustments.

Spread that around BTL readers.

CHURCH SUNDAY YAQONA BAN

Consumption of yaqona on Sunday remains a big issue for the Methodist Church in Fiji.

The Bose Ko Viti (annual church conference) agreed that the consumption of yaqona should end at 10pm on Saturday.

However, some members believe that they should stop when they’re doped.

A church division wants to move a motion to ban yaqona consumption on Saturday and Sunday.

RESPECT YOUR NEIGHBOUR

Last week, a resident of Wailoku, Suva, was at her home when her neighbours decided to spray her with water, from their garden hose.

The couple allegedly did this because their neighbour was playing music at a loud volume.

Questions that come to mind are:
(1) Are we just going to take matters into our hands when dealing with such incidents (spraying people with water for playing loud music); and
(2) Are we not going to talk or communicate about it?

The couple not only did it once but sprayed their neighbour’s porch twice.

We, as a society, need to keep talking. If you are not happy with something about someone, communicate. This is the only way you can clear the air.

BTL readers must understand that you cannot take matters into your own hands.

FYI, Police are aware of what happened that night.
