SOCIAL Democratic Liberal Party candidate Ro Filipe Tuisawau says he will pursue death penalty for child rapists and murderers if their party comes into Government after the 2018 General Election.
He said the lack of moral leadership in Fiji showed that the nation had started to deteriorate.
“The rape situation is one of the worst in the world,” he claimed.
“I will pursue death penalty for child rape and murder. Physical and chemical castration of rapists is a must.
“This must be immediately implemented. Rapists must be whipped every week,” Ro Filipe said.
Ro Filipe said a new constitution was needed to be formulated and validated by the people.
The Rewa chief, who is contesting the 2018 polls, is a former student of Queen Victoria School and has a Bachelor of Arts and Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of the South Pacific.
Ro Filipe also attained a Masters of Business Administration from Massey University, New Zealand and graduate certificate in Migration Law from Australian National University.
For 30 years, he worked for the USP, Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, Air Terminal Services and the South Pacific Tourism Organisation.
Ro Filipe was also a director of Airports Fiji Ltd and is a director of Rewa Provincial Holdings Fiji Ltd.
He is married with five children.
