Our laws – and their enforcement – are sacred in our democracy. They are the very foundation of our society; the rules to which all of us are bound and by which we all must abide. And every Fijian deserves to know that the institutions entrusted with upholding our laws are wholly independent.
I am pleased to have received the Return of the Writ earlier than expected and I wish to commend and acknowledge the hard work of all the individuals who had contributed to the successful return of the Writ today. 
The Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect, or PCAN for short, is observed globally in November every year. 
My fellow Fijians, today may just be one footbridge, but it’s much more than that to the hundreds of men, women, and children who will use it every day.
