Two of the country’s most incompetent agencies have been singled out for their so-called ‘excellent’ service.
|Torture of Benedito and another prisoner.|
Both Corrections and Police have had poor public relations records in recent years, with cases such as that of Iowane Benedito going uninvestigated despite the perpetrators being identified.
The awards seem to have been given out indiscriminately with almost every government agency and Ministry being rated. One has to ask: how believable is that?
|‘Traumatic’ injuries: Soko’s report talks of assault.|
|Lost limb: Escaped prisoner.|
