Dear editor.

It's a sad testimony to read in this website that Hon. Peter Shanel has been sentenced with two criminal cases. In the rightful mind of people it's a disgraceful thing to happen.

It's a shame for me as a citizen to have a respectful person in the Honourable House to put his feet in the shoes of criminal youths around Honiara who use knives to hurt victims. My question now is, are we putting the right people in our house of representatives to lead our beloved nation?

Shame on us because our honourable member is putting our political leadership to be another laughing stock.
