It’s a gratuitous issue
Re: Decision is final
End of matter the policy statement is crystal clear.
Except! Why faked passports hence a trait of the criminal world is part of the spray by the Hon. Prime Minister of Samoa while defining the value of a diplomatic passport, surely beats me.
However, the diplomatic passport for former head of state and wife is a gratuitous issue that should have never become news.
And who made it news?
But analysing the issue carefully from my perspective should ever I am elevated from the Council of Deputies to become head of state and wants to keep my diplomatic passport for life, I would rather remain as member of Council of Deputies.
And only if ever I am worth.
Well, provide the Constitution is remained as it is without an amendment to dissolve the Council of Deputies.
With all due respect for current members; the question being: Do we need it as we know the appointments carried a chunk of dough?
That’s another issue for another time but diplomatic passports for former head of state and wife; the government decision is locked stocked and barrelled.
Sealed and delivered; case closed!
