Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On
How many more people like Chen Guoming are in Fiji, and how many hope to find refuge in the Pacific Islands? All of the Pacific Island governments have to work together to keep these scoundrels away. We have our own problems and we don't need any more. They will probably be loaded with money made from drug sales and hope to launder it in the Pacific. It is my belief that this kind of people will come to the Pacific because they think that we have a laid back life style.
Border control agencies will have to lift their vigilance to another notch to be able to identify and catch them.
And we may need to re-look at the laws governing new crimes, because criminals could be scouring the laws of Pacific Island countries and find that they could get away with their type of crime.
Allen Lockington is a self-employed customs agent and business consultant who has regular articles published in Fiji. I thank Allen for permission to reprint some of them in this political blog. They remind us that life goes on, whatever the political situation. And it's good to know that.
