The Fiji Police Force is again appealing to members of the public not to upload false information and pictures on social media.

This was after they found a Facebook user posting pictures of what was alleged to be illicit substance on her Facebook account.

Police’s chief of investigations and intelligence Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Henry Brown confirmed they had taken in a few individuals for questioning in relation to the case.

“Investigations are still ongoing and we are trying to establish the facts and her motive of doing that,” ACP Brown said.

“At this stage it seems that these things are not true and we are pleading to members of the public not to put images and comments such as this on social media because everyone can see it and it will go viral online.

“The concern is that this depicts a wrong picture of Fiji to the world because these things will go viral; we will get to the bottom of this and we have taken in some individuals for questioning,” he said.

ACP Brown said people should refrain from doing these things because it was a waste of Police resources if the allegations were not true.

“This also raises a concern of responsible members of the public and we will not hesitate to get to these very people,” he said.
