THE family of a mother and daughter tragically killed at the Suva Bus Stand on Tuesday say they have not decided on whether to take legal action.
The victims, Seruwaia Rokoseru and her three-year-old daughter Paulini Tubuna died after they were crushed between two buses on Tuesday.
Speaking on behalf of the family, Rokoseru's cousin Sitiveni Verekauta said while there had been talks of legal action, nothing had been decided yet.
He said the family would wait to lay Rokoseru and Tubuna to rest at Nabukelevu Village in Kadavu today before deciding on their next course of action.
Mr Verekauta did say that Dee Cee's buses had stepped up to assist the family with costs for the funeral. Meanwhile, police say they will discuss the case further with the DPP to decide what charges will be laid.
Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the case had also been reclassified from a traffic offence to a criminal offence.
Fiji Bus Operators Association vice president Richard Lal said they would let justice take its course, adding bus operators could not take all the blame for the tragic event.
"Our people are very good. It's the people that work for them that cause the problems, the operators do not cause the problems," Mr Lal said.
LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia said the authority was in continuous consultation with bus drivers to find common solutions for safety problems, adding that the accident was beyond their control.
