SICTU oppose Moti's appointment as Solomons Attorney General

The Solomon Islands Council of Trade Union (SICTU) is calling on the Governor General not to Administer the swearing in of the controversial lawyer, Julian Moti as Solomon Islands' Attorney General.

SICTU National Secretary Tony Kagovai says the Council was totally opposed to the appointment because of the way Moti had been meddling in the nation's affairs for the past 15 years.

Mr Kagovai says that with that person's track record and his appointment as the country's principal legal officer it would be a very dangerous and a major step backward for the nation.He says Mr Moti has been interfering in the country's domestic politics, undermining the integrity and independence of the Judiciary and attacking the welfare of the nation's workers for the last 15 years.

Mr Kagovai says that following a special meeting last Friday, the council has written to the Governor General, Sir Nathaniel Weana respectfully requesting him to protect the country's constitution and the independence of the legal system in this matter.

He says SICTU took the action because it knows the government is planning to appointment Mr Moti regardless of his suspension by the Public Service Commission.
