President Major-General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote has extended the contracts of our top men in the disciplined forces.

They are for Republic of Fiji Military Forces Commander Rear Admiral Viliame Naupoto, Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho and Fiji Corrections Service Commissioner Commander Francis Kean.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday confirmed that he wrote to the President seeking an extension to the contracts to allow the Constitutional Offices Commission to meet.

Meanwhile, Acting Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu confirmed that he had applied for the post of Commissioner of Police. The current Commissioner of Police’s term ends this Thursday, together with the Commander of the RFMF’s term.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Qiliho is currently studying in London and returns to the country in July.
