Board Chairman Philip Tegavota in a statement, says the the Correctional Services Parole Board is an independent body established by an act of parliament through a legislation known as the Correctional Services Act in 2007.
He says the release of Mr Lusibaea on licence had been done by the Correctional Institutional Parole Board in compliance with the provisions of the Correctional Services Act 2007 and regulation 208 of the Correctional Services Regulations 2008 made under that principal act.
The Board Chairman says claims of the board's hasty appointments and the pressurising of the Correctional Services Commissioner were also nonsense.
Mr Tegavota says the parole board was appointed and gazetted on the 22nd of December last year to fulfil a requirement under the Correctional Services Act 2007.
He also explained that it was also important to set up the parole board to deal with 16 applications from prisoners for parole , nine of whom had applied as early as 2008, which the previous board was not able to deal with because it never met.
Mr Tegavota also emphasised that legal avenue for the release of prisoners has always been there and is open to every prisoner.
He adds that it is a legal mechanism enacted in law to address the concerns and issus facing prisoners who have been treated as the forgotten community under the previous Prisons Act.
He also urged the Opposition to demonstrate responsibility in making hasty unfounded allegations designed to confuse people.
Mr Levo was the only other prisoner to have been released by the Parole Board along with jailed North Malaita M-P, Jimmy Lusibaea last Friday.
The former lawyer was charged with five counts of conversion relating to 15-thousand dollars he had embezzled from the formerly National Bank of the Solomon Islands, now Bank South Pacific, while he was working as a legal advisor for the bank.
He was sentenced in May last year to two years imprisonment with a 12 month suspended sentence.
Meanwhile, Commissioner of Correctional Services, Francis Haisoma says submissions for Mr Levo's release did not go through his office.
SIBC News understands that Mr Levo is still facing another 21 counts of conversion charges which he has been committed to stand trial on at the High Court.
Guadalcanal provincial acting premier, Andrew Rayboy said the release last week of North Malaita MP, Jimmy Lusibaea appears to be surrounded by elements of favouritism and threat.
Mr Rayboy said there are a number of inmates who are not criminals of their own making but are serving life sentences for offences committed because of the circumstances of the ethnic unrest.
He adds that the decision was swift and surprising and a manifestation of selfish and ill considerate decision.
Mr Rayboy said, there are a number of decent young Solomon Islanders in prison from all provinces whom the national government and the parole board must also consider under the Correctional Services Act and the responsibilities of the responsible minister in making such decisions.
Meanwhile, the Acting Premier acknowledges the decision of the parole board under appropriate ordinances to grant the release of inmates on license.
Guests at the opening ceremony included the Prime Minister and few of his ministers, members of the diplomatic corps and the private sector.
Speaking during the opening ceremony, owner and Republic of Korea's consul, Durk (Dak) Kee Kim, acknowledged the hard work put together by various businesses and individuals towards the building.
Mr. Kim says the two years of hard work has finally paid off with the opening of the Hyundai shopping mall.
Mr. Kim says the new shopping mall will serve Solomon Islanders in general and it will also boost the country's tourism sector.
Mr. Kim also revealed that the ground floor and the first floor will house specialised shops, a supermarket, retail and food shops while the second floor will cater for corporate bodies, organizations and institutions.
Mr. Kim says the mall will be an exciting place as a variety of services will be provided under one roof.
Meanwhile Prime Minister, Danny Philip, has called on all Solomon Islands citizens to exercise nationalism, and to have hopes, interests and aspirations for the country.
The Prime Minister made the call during the opening of the city's newest shopping mall, Hyundai building.
Mr. Philip says the mall is a contribution to the economic recovery and nation- building following what the country's bad experiences in the recent past.
He says Solomon Islanders must ensure they have the same zeal, nationalism and pride for the country.
Prime Minister Philip also called on every citizen to respect investor contributions to the growth of the economy.
The Prime Minister also acknowledged the efforts of private entities, individuals and companies that have contributed to the economic growth of the country.
Mr. Philip says he believes the private sector, as the economic engine, will continue to play a vital role in the development of the country's economy.
Permanent Secretary for the Ministry, John Ta'aru told SIBC the design and costing for an additional wing still needs to be completed before the contract for the renovations can be put out for tender.
Mr Ta'aru says, although the outsourcing of the renovations for the PM's residence is the responsibility of the Ministry of Infrastructure Development, they have been left out.
Prime-Minister Danny Phillip came under pressure last year when it was publicly revealed that the Government paid 168-thousand dollars in rentals to the tenant of the property he was residing in, while his official residence at Vavaya Ridge was being renovated.
The six month lease which was paid in advance is due to end in February.
Fiji Times reports that a group of landowners led by former speaker and Government minister, Paul Tovua met with Fiji officials last week and visited the Monasavu Dam on Saturday.
It reported Mr Tovua saying the visit was part of the Tina River Hydro Project feasibility study and a report on the study should be given to the Solomon Islands government by April.
He says if all goes well, the US$80million (F$146.06m) project should be completed within the next four years.
Tovua says they looked to Fiji as it was one of the few countries in the region that had experience in dam construction.
Mr Tovua says for the long-term, the vision was to build a hydro that would generate 45 megawatts of electricity to Honiara.
He says the first phase would be to produce 15MW to avoid high fuel bill.
Meanwhile, Mr Tovua thanks the Government of Fiji, particularly the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for organising this under short notice.
Mr. Hou had recently toured his constituency to promote his idea to implement a Youth Volunteer Scheme (YVS).
The Scheme will see youths playing a volunteer role in the constituency's development plans and will also include the sub- division of Small Malaita constituency into zones.
But Robert Hite says the idea by Mr. Hou to divide Small Malaita constituency into zones cannot work.
Mr. Hite says the constituency has been divided already along tribal lines.
He suggested for Mr. Hou to use the existing traditional system which has been tested and tried over time memorial.
Mr. Hite says people today do not work free but work mainly for money to cater for daily needs, thus, the young people of South Malaita cannot work for free as Mr. Hou sees it.
