Dear Editor,

This is indeed good news and appears to be a positive step toward the betterment of corporate, public service and political integrity.

It is my fondest wish, for the Residents and Citizens of Vanuatu, that the formation of a National Anti-Corruption Unit does eventuate — with the following provisos:

(1) That such a body, when formed, is able to act independently of political interference, particularly from the so-called “big men” of politics;

(2) That those involved (hopefully including honourable persons such as Ralph Regenvanu) seek the assistance and guidance from UNCAC (United Nations Convention Against Corruption) to ensure that the best possible outcome is achieved;

(3) That the end result is one wherein the tenets of F.A.I.T.H. (Fidelity, Accountability, Integrity, Transparency and Honesty) become a way of life in Vanuatu.

If this does happen, then we may yet see a return of “The Happiest Place on Earth” to Vanuatu.

“Long God Yumi Stap!”
