Fiji Times Online Story: Call to exclude human rights
Editor,
I refer to the "call to exclude human rights"(FT 8/8)and ask what else should be excluded? What about good governance of the democratic kind - with its stress on public accountability and transparency and citizenship rights? Should that be excluded also? Then what are we left with?
Sincerely,
Rajend Naidu

HUMAN rights should not be practised in Fiji as it contradicts traditional and cultural values.
