PM: Condolences to NZ Mass Shooting Victims
In light of the mass shooting at two of Christchurch’s mosques, Prime Minister Bainimarama said the shocking news has broken many Fijian hearts.
He says New Zealand is a place where an atrocity of this nature is shocking almost beyond comprehension.
In a statement, Bainimarama said that across all religions, our houses of worship are a source of refuge, of prayer, and of love.
He said that to see such a heinous and hate-filled act occur in what should be places of peace is the darkest of evils.
He added that the Fijian people will stand with its Pacific family in this time of suffering and sadness, and condemns all forms of hatred and terror.
Fiji will be working closely with authorities in New Zealand to monitor the welfare of Fijians in Christchurch, and will provide updates as they are made available.
