Ramsi Exit Solomons As Some Citizens Feel There Is Unfinished Business

Citizens claim roots of ethnic tension not resolved, instigators not arrested

By Aatai John

HONIARA, Solomon Islands (Solomon Star, December 15, 2016) – The Regional Assistant Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI) has announced its exit plan for June next year, but some citizens feel its mission is not complete.

According to a Honiara resident Rolland Raramo, no person had been arrested or held responsible for the ethnic tension since RAMSI’s arrival.

“The so called big fish that is responsible for the ethnic tension which claims hundreds of lives is still not arrested,” Mr Raramo said.

He said police are now doing a great job in arresting corrupt officers within our public offices, but RAMSI should not ignore those who started the tension.

“It is not fair for RAMSI to leave without capturing those responsible for the ethnic tension,” the concerned resident said.

He said investigation into the crisis must reach its roots.

“These people must be arrested before RAMSI leaves our shore so that those responsible tell this nation in court how their political interest fuelled the crisis that resulted in many deaths and destruction,” Mr Raramo said.
