Traditional protocol

Korina Waibuta, Knollys St, Suva
Monday, March 05, 2018

I believe the Tui Macuata is correct — traditional protocol should always be followed (FT 03/03), especially in an emergency.

I believe as proven here, things went smoothly in the search after traditional protocol was followed (FT 28/02).

Where I come from traditional protocol can take 20 minutes and it does not have to include the drinking of yaqona.

People do recognise the police uniform and understand the authority it represents.

Despite this, I believe that when one enters a village in Fiji then the vanua should be shown the recognition and respect due to them.

Talking about "saving lives" (FT 03/03), were there any hospital trauma or emergency retrieval teams on site with the police?
