Update: 12:15PM RECONCILIATION and respect for the rule of law are the only way to heal the divisions after the events of 2006 and unite the people of Fiji.

Shadow Minister for Defence and National Security, Mosese Bulitavu said this in a statement issued by the Opposition's Office yesterday calling for the restoration of human rights in Fiji.

Mr Bulitavu said the absence of the culture of human rights in Fiji has deprived Fijians to freely express themselves and be heard.

"�� the FijiFirst Government has chosen to further muzzle those rights by limiting media freedom and compromising the neutrality of the Fiji Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Commission (FHRADC) by appointing its political cronies other than independent persons," Mr Bulitavu said.

He said when he was elected into parliament; he made a plea to the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama in his maiden address on October 14, 2014 to lay down the basis for national reconciliation to pave the way forward for all the people of Fiji.
