Dear Editor,

Fiji’s Attorney General and Economy Minister, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, saying there will be no grants to USP unless VC Professor Pal is replaced (The Fiji Times 20/8) reminds me of the tantrum of the little boy who walks away with his ball from the playground because he can’t have his way.

Of course the decision to withhold USP funding is far more absurd and unbecoming of the Fijian government given the Fijian PM’s proclaimed commitment to regionalism.

I hope good sense will prevail for the sake of the students from across the region who study at the premier regional institution of higher learning.
