Ronald Chand, the man that was declared dead by official Court documents says he has not received any legal help since his story was published in the Fiji Sun.

The father of four is seeking justice to claim for his compensation from the Ministry of Employment.

Unfortunately, to date, he said no one from the ministry had contacted him.

Mr Chand said since the story was published in the Fiji Sun on January 25, he has not received any help.

Mr Chand was injured in 2015 while operating a machine at Dalomo Mill under Sam’s Civil Service Company.

“A lot of people came to my house as they were all surprised by the false claims that I am dead,” he said.

Accident Compensation Commission Fiji (ACCF) pays compensation for serious injuries and deaths arising from motor vehicle accidents from January 1, 2018 and employment and school accidents from January 1, 2019.

ACCF said any entitlement to compensation will be assessed based on an application made by the victim to ACCF.

Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Permanent Secretary Osea Cawaru has not responded to questions sent to him.
