Acting Prime Minister and Attorney-General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum in an emotional ceremony this morning (22/06/18) handed over cheques to two gentlemen who had lost their loved ones in two separate road accidents earlier this year.
The handout is the second compensation this year given under the new Accident Compensation Act.
The two gentlemen, Ameo Matavutuka and George Mawi both received $75, 000 each and acknowledged the Fijian Government including all stakeholders involved for the compensation.
Sayed-Khaiyum highlighted that it was always an emotional issue when such payments were made to family members who have lost their loved ones.
The A-G also stated that one of the main reasons for highlighting the issue was to create awareness on the Accident Compensation Act.
