The Office of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (OPMC) has urged the Leader of the Independent Group, Hon. Derek Sikua not to mislead the nation with his unapprised statements.
The call follows the Independent Group Leader’s implication in a statement issued yesterday claiming the ruling Democratic Coalition for Change Government (DCCG) fails to address the recommendations of the Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) on the ethnic crisis.
But a statement from the OPMC today says Dr Sikua’s statement is grossly misleading because DCCG’s policy intention is to address the underlying issues of the ethnic crisis.
The OPMC clarifies Prime Minister in his National Apology Speech to open the National Apology and Healing Programme at the Rove Police Ground on the 4th of July 2016, has reassured the country DCCG is finalising the recommendations of the TRC Report which suggest ways of attending to the issues and concerns of both the perpetrators and victims of the crisis.
It adds these issues and concerns will be taken up in a Reparation Bill that DCCG will take to Parliament.
