Minister for Education, Rosy Akbar has received a complaint by the National Federation Party Youth General Secretary that a teacher in Suva is allegedly behind repeated facebook posts to humiliate NFP parliamentarian, Lenora Qereqeretabua with references to pornography and immorality.

In his official complaint to the Minister for Education, NFP Youth General Secretary, Apenisa Vatuniveivuke says the teacher’s name is Kishore Kumar and he is reliably informed that Kumar is employed by the ministry as a Computer Science Teacher at a school in Suva.

Vatuniveivuke says Kumar has irrefutably referred to Qereqeretabua as a Fly-Style Porn Star. He says these posts have been available on Facebook, a public forum, for months.

He says his concern is whether the Ministry of Education is aware of these incidences and why no action has been taken.

The complainant says the public and by extension students, have access to these posts and he has raised the question on what kind of example is the ministry setting for the students.

When questioned by fijivillage, Rosy Akbar says allegations against teachers are referred to the Human Resources Department to investigate. She says this complaint has been referred to HR as well.

Qereqeretabua says Kumar’s allegations are false, and it is clear the online bullying is to intimidate her. However she says she is undeterred by these false claims.

Qereqeretabua says she will fight on and she is also thankful to many people who continue to defend her.

Police confirm that Qereqeretabua had lodged a report with the CID and it is currently under investigation.

The complaint was filed in August.
