Service to the public

TWENTY-EIGHT justice of peace and commissioners for oath in the North now have a better understanding of their work after attending a training workshop at the Friendly North Inn in Labasa on Saturday.

Facilitator and commissioner for oath Joel Sahai said the workshop was aimed at helping the participants to understand the importance of their service to the general public.

“The participants took an oath to serve the public and it’s important that they know their responsibilities,” he said.

“This workshop also serves to remind the participants on the type of documents they can and cannot certify. Some of the documents they can’t certify are the certificate of titles and probate.

“We just want to refresh and upskill their knowledge and help them deliver excellent services to the people that come to them for certification.”

Mr Sahai said this was the first workshop of its kind to be held in the North.
