RFMF compensates soldiers
Tuesday, March 01, 2011
The Republic of Fiji Military Forces is compensating soldiers who were injured while serving in Lebanon and Sinai between 1978 and 1997.
The RFMF says soldiers who were injured while serving during this period in Sinai and Lebanon will have to report to their respective military camps.
Word from the Compensation Section of the RFMF is that interviews have begun at different camps around Fiji to determine soldiers eligibility.
It says interviews were held in Suva yesterday and interviews for the Northern Division at the Sukanaivalu barracks in Vatureka will be held tomorrow.
The Section has urged all those in the Northern Division who want to be compensated to turn up to the Labasa camp tomorrow.
