Fono calls on govt to help looting victims

Opposition leader Fred Fono wants the government to help Solomon Islanders who fell victims to the recent rioting in Honiara.He said this after a number of victims who had lost their jobs in the looting and torching of their work places in Honiara on April 18 and 19 visited his office.

Mr Fono has been told that those with families have been finding it very difficult to feed them let alone sending their children to school.He said as these people are Solomon Islanders, the government should help those who want to return home with their repatriation expenses, adding it should also compensate them for the loss of employment, as had been the case during the ethnic tension.Meanwhile, Mr Fono commends development partners, foreign organisations, churches and business houses that had provided tangible assistance to the Chinese Association to clean up Chinatown.But he is concerned that the government has yet to offer a helping hand.
