The resignation of Manasa Baravilala
as chairman of Air Terminal Services
and also the acting managing directors position will come as a great surprise to those of us who condemn coups.
The events of 2006 undermined democracy in Fiji and Mr Baravilala's
appointment as ATS board chairman was not without controversy.
Interim Transport Minister Manu Korovulavula appointed Mr Baravilala
by revoking unionist Rajeshwar Singh's appointment by the board of directors of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Fiji Islands
for the same position.
...Mr Baravilala was managing director of the same board before his appointment as board chairman of ATS.
As Mr Baravilala
will not divulge as to why he
has resigned we can only hope he
has finally realised that all credibility is lost for those that have condoned the events of 2006 and supported the rape of a democractic process which is designed to serve every citizen of Fiji.
All is not lost for people like Mr Baravilala
, they should be forgiven and given another chance to take up positions in Fiji's future democratically elected government for their qualification and experience if they choose to do so.
