Investigate and recall PNG diplomat from Fiji

Letters, Normal

I CALL on Immigration Minister Sam Abal to investigate PNG High Commissioner to Fiji, Peter Eafere, and if the situation warrants it, recall him immediately before further damage is done.
The Fiji Sun newspaper (Dec 28) reported that a PNG High Commission driver was charged with drink-driving and without a driving licence.
Who authorised this person to drive a vehicle of the State under the influence of alcohol and without a licence?
His wife and son have also been seen driving the State-owned vehicle.
The PNG community here has raised some concerns that the high commissioner is running the office like a family-business and in my four years of stay in Fiji, there is no PNG Independence celebration.
The response we get from the high commission is that “there is no money” to host PNG functions.
There was no reception or farewell for Miss PNG Antonia Singut, who took part in the recent Miss South Pacific pageant.
I have called the office many times only to be told the high commissioner or his secretary is sick or overseas.
But in actual fact, he is playing and “partying” at Natadola golf course every week.
PNG is now a big player in the South Pacific after we acquired Fiji’s Colonial Bank.
As such, the actions of the high commissioner stated are derogatory in nature and an embarrassment to the PNG community in Fiji.– Concerned PNG resident Suva, Fiji
