Fijian Navy Commander John Fox is expected to disclose further details on the Republic of Fiji Navy Ship Kiro this week.

The naval ship has been stuck on Cakauyawa Reef off Makuluva Island after it ran aground last month.

Commander Fox confirmed that they would be holding a press conference and would respond to queries from the media.

“I am expected to brief the RFMF commander where we will discuss about Kiro and from there he will decide which step to take next,” Commander Fox said.

At moment they were making every effort to salvage the ship, he said.

Questions sent to the RFMF Commander, Rear Admiral Viliame Naupoto remained unanswered when this edition went to press.

Meanwhile, Commander Marika Vosawale said last week that the Board of Inquiry into the RFNS Kiro was complete. Edited by Ranoba Baoa
