Its amazing to read that a so-called educated person, such as a doctor jiko Luveni, would blame women as the cause of sex crimes.
Dr Luveni was quoted as saying that that “women should dress modestly and help men in the national campaign to cut down sex crimes” and that “if a girl is going out to drink with guys in an isolated area wearing shorts or clothes showing off her body, she is inviting trouble.” Will Dr Luveni next blame children for the criminal acts of paedophiles!
But Dr Luveni's stupidity highlights two key points:
“Such utterances from a government minister and a woman at that, is absurd and she is in effect making excuses for the behaviour of men in the presence of women.”
She pointed out that both men and women must be held to a standard of behaviour in mixed company and basic good manners and respect for each other is a minimum level of behaviour for all.
“A girl or women’s choice and style of dress must never be used as an excuse for anyone to commit such a heinous crime against women and children,” Dr Samisoni said.
National Federation Party leader Dr Biman Prasad also joined in the chorus, calling on Dr Luveni to apologise to the local women community. He also suggested that Dr Luveni “ought to teach men to respect women.” We suggest Dr Luveni start with her idol who is also the Fiji First PArty leader, the lying, corrupt Frank Bainimarama.
Dr Luveni denied saying that victims of rape were to be blamed, adding that her comments were distorted. ....Yeah right! Tu na da Dr Luveni!!
