Payment at last

AN emotional Amelia Kotobalavu Ratoki could not hold back tears as she received compensation payment from the Labour Ministry for her late husband who went missing at sea in 2007.

Mrs Ratoki's husband Timoci Ratoki was a 36-year-old boatman with the Fisheries Ministry when he went missing.

Mr Ratoki is survived by his wife and two children who will share the $24,000 that was given by the Labour Ministry.

Mrs Ratoki received $12,000, her daughter Atasa Coa received $7000 and her son Ilikimi Navale received $5000.

Mrs Ratoki said she was shocked when she received a phone call on Tuesday morning to pick up the cheque from the Labour Ministry.

She said they waited seven years for the payment and were grateful for the ministry's help.
