Man of honour

Siteri Sauvakacolo
Thursday, April 10, 2014

HENRY De Watcher's main reason for joining the Fiji Corrections Service is to help rehabilitate convicted citizens.

While he has yet to complete four units in his Bachelor of Arts in Management and International Affairs course, he believes it's time to help fellow citizens in prison.

The Baton of Honour award was presented to the Sawana, Vanuabalavu, native last week for his hard work and dedication.

"Just upon marching into camp on January 19, I made my goal to achieve something during these 12 weeks," Mr De Watcher said.

"And I am really honoured to be achieving this award. I dedicate this achievement to the Lord, my family and my wife Iva Bulavaki.

"I decided to join the workforce because, as we all know, inside the prisons are fathers, brothers, husbands and grandfathers.

"They've been convicted but they needn't be rejected. Rehabilitation programs will make them better citizens."
