The way things work

Dear Editor,

Re: Frustrated businessman breaks his silence 

Fairness and complete transparency has never been associated with Customs here or anywhere else for that matter. Corruption and favoritism with illegal payoffs is more their style. 

These are the people who think they hold the key on how much you pay in the palm of their hands. There is no honesty at all. 

For years this department have shown its arrogance and entitlement attitude towards honest abiding small business owners and regular folks. 

Just reading Maualaivao Seiuli’s response to the newspaper shows the cancers far reaching claws see’s no barriers. 

We’d like to think honest and compassion goes without saying but the reality and truth of the matter is, these individuals once put in these positions turn into self entitled officers and those that suffer are the small business owners doing everything right following the rule of the law yet undermined by these individuals.

Best of luck to Le Well and it’s struggles because they definitely need a miracle.
