MFAET Condemns unbecoming behaviors of certain PALM workers featured in a clip that went viral.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and External Trade has condemned the live media clip viewed by many Solomon Islanders last night.
The social media clip shows four Solomon Island, workers under the PALM scheme drinking alcohol, appeared to be heavily intoxicated and using foul language directed at viewers including the national government.
MFAET condemns such behavior of the individuals led by Nelson Rembi Lipujama, this is shameful and disappointing for the country’s image and families of the individuals and does not uphold the values of Solomon Islands.
Such actions tarnish the positive reputation of the Solomon Islands “Here to Work” brand in Australia and will be investigated.
The Solomon Islands government is also reminding Solomon Islands workers under PALM or the RSE that such actions will not be tolerated and wish to reiterate the importance of workers maintaining good behavior at all times as good Ambassadors of the country.
