CCF holds back booklet

THE Citizen's Constitutional Forum stopped the distribution of the 2013 Government Constitution Booklet, which the Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum labelled misleading.

CCF chief executive Reverend Akuila Yabakai said an official complaint was received on Tuesday morning from the Attorney-General's Office.

"We have advised our field staff to stop the distribution of the booklets and we have stopped handing them out from our office," Mr Yabaki said.

"We had printed 10,000 copies which were to be used for the sole purpose of education, of which some 2000 only remain.

"Let me make this very clear, we are not aligned with any political party and our intention has nothing to do with politics. We are simply educators."

The CCF is now looking to respond to the A-G's Office.

According to Mr Yabaki, the government doesn't agree with some commentaries printed in the booklet.
