Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says he does not have the legal authority to get husbands to stay with their wives, wives to return to their husbands or sons to be forced to look after their parents.
While speaking at the National Budget Roadshow at Rampur College in Navua last night, Sayed-Khaiyum said some people are wanting the government to resolve their personal matters but the government does not have the legal authority to do that.
Sayed-Khaiyum stressed this point after a Navua resident continued to push for the government to set up an office for commercial advice just like the Legal Aid Commission Office.
The Navua man said that they have 2 acres of land and an investor wants to invest $250,000, however they are uneducated and want the government to set up an office to give the right advice.
Sayed-Khaiyum said that the government does not have this and he cannot say at this stage on whether there will be an office in the future.
He says if the man wrote to his office, then they could point him in the right direction however they cannot do more than that.
