Public Service Commission (PSC) Chairman, Martin Mahe said Public Servants involved in any accidents while under the influence of alcohol will be terminated from service.
“I want to make it clear that the present commission will not tolerate anyone who has involved in any accident while under the influence of alcohol.”
The PSC Chairman made the statement on Wednesday this week when speaking to the Daily Post on the recent accidents in Port Vila.
There were three reported accidents in the month of June involving ‘G’ vehicles. One that raised a lot of complains happened at Beverly Hills on the week when the country was mourning the passing of Late President Baldwin Lonsdale.
The Chairman also shared disappointment over the continuous accidents although several warnings were made on how ‘G’ vehicles should be used.
“I am very sad and disappointed to see that despite the memos and warnings we sent over the use of ‘G’ vehicles public servants never respect the warnings made by authorities.”
Mahe said the purpose of the memo released on the use of ‘G’ vehicles is to bring back the sense of responsibility, sense of commitment and sense of dedication of service from all public servants.
He said those who breached the regulation have failed to comply with the directives put in place by the present government and will likely suffer the consequences.
The PSC chairman made an example on the driver who was involved in an accident at Erakor saying he was terminated by the Commission without any benefits. READ MORE
