FIJI National Provident Fund (FNPF) pensioners want the constitution to require the government-of-the-day to regularly report to the people on its financial position.

In a submission on behalf of pensioners, 82-year-old Ken Giblin told the Constitution Commission that the document should have guidelines governing financial management in Fiji.

He requested that the Bill of Rights included full protection of the rights and interests of pensioners. He said this should guarantee that legally-agreed pensions are inviolable.

"The Bill of Rights should forbid any discriminatory treatment of pensioners and provide for their dignity to be respected," Mr Giblin said.
