It’s still abuse

Dear Editor,

Re: P.M. says public want reasonable force 

The best thing you should do Stui to make sure you get more foreign aid to comply with UN regulations. 


Your “reasonable force” argument is nonsensical and pathetic. 

Reasonable force is still corporal punishment, physical punishment in this day and age. It is commonly known as physical abuse and it’s a violation of human rights and violation of the rights of a child.

Why not use the proceeds of S.I.F.A. to really provide social programmes to address any issues with young people? 

You have told the world that proceeds of money from offshore banking is used for social programmes for vulnerable children but there is basically nothing at all. Why are there no social programmes for young people?
