Proud day for young JP

YESTERDAY was the proudest day for 33-year-old David Ramesh Prasad who was sworn in as both a Commissioner of Oaths and Justice of Peace in the Supreme Court in Suva.

The youngest JP said he was extremely happy at being given the chance to serve the public.

"It is an honour to serve my people. I can not express how thankful I am for having this opportunity," Mr Prasad said.

"I've been emotionally touched. I am grateful for the public support I have received, especially from my community, Namosi."

Mr Prasad thanked his family and friends as well as the church for their valuable support, adding it was faith that had brought him this far.

Mr Prasad, who runs a public transportation service, has been involved with community work for some time.

"Two months ago, I filed around 1000 formal proofs and local affidavits. All this service led to my appointment as a JP today," he said.

Mr Prasad loves to play rugby and also aspires to be a marriage officer in the near future.
