Villagers didn’t breach any law: Gavoka Villagers of Namatakula in Nadroga did not breach any laws whilst protesting for resorts along the Coral Cost not to be used as quarantine facilities on Monday.

Social Democratic Liberal Party leader Viliame Gavoka said it was upsetting to hear that eight village members were taken in for questioning for protesting within the village boundary.

Gavoka said the villagers do not want resorts near them to be used as quarantine facilities as a breach in the protocol can put them at high risk of contracting the virus.

“The villagers were not breaking any laws while protesting for resorts near them to be used as quarantine facilities as it was not carried out in public spaces,” he said.

“The people of Nadroga are coronavirus free and are in one accord that they want to keep it that way. They do not want to put villagers at risk.

“They know that the Delta variant is paralysing the country today was due to one simple lapse in protocol at a Nadi quarantine facility.

“This can also happen at a Nadroga facility hence the protest by the people of the province. It is something that we must expect considering the lack of consultation,” he said.

Gavoka said in an interview the government should have carried out consultations with villagers before making any decisions for resorts to be used as quarantine facilities.

“We condemn the action by police rounding up villagers of Namatakula and taking them in for questioning yesterday afternoon.

“This action by authorities is nothing short of fear-mongering and intimidation tactics, and it must stop, government should heed their concern,” he said.

He said the government should respect the rights of citizens when they protest lawfully.
