FAISI WELCOMES COURT CASE OVER CONTRACT ISSUE
Former General-Secretary of the Solomon Islands National Teachers Association (SINTA) Samson Faisi has said he welcomes any court proceedings taken against him by SINTA.
Mr Faisi told SIBC News in an exclusive interview recently.
He said while he welcomes any court proceedings, Mr Faisi questioned the vested interests behind the decision reached by the association.
“I welcome that because personally and from advice I’ve gathered from lawyers or what we say legal opinions, I believe that I am on the winning side and as I said, why did they want me to bring a case against them in the High Court and for who’s interest? Because they know very well that a losing party will have to foot the legal fees and I guess it will be SINTA.”
Meanwhile, Mr Faisi said teachers in the country should be aware of the interests behind the decision made by SINTA concerning his contract.
“As a person working for the interest of teachers and not for my own, I guess that teachers in the country should be made aware of this, it’s not what they want but only for the interest of certain individuals within the SINTA Executive and the Secretariat, of which teachers must be able to understand this and must be able to express their thoughts on the Executive’s action.”
