A talanoa session in Labasa has been told that an independent body is investigating an incident in which a political party billboard was destroyed in the lead-up to last year’s general election.

The assurance that Police were looking into the matter was given by Commissioner Bernardus Groenewald during the first public consultation at Labasa College Hall on Wednesday.

The issue was raised by Fiji Labour Party candidate Kamlesh Prasad, while discussing queries about service delivery by the Police in Labasa.

Mr Prasad claimed the party billboard was destroyed last September and yet Police did nothing about it. “The billboard was damaged in broad daylight, but your Police officers did nothing to the people involved,” Mr Prasad told Mr Groenewald.

Mr Prasad claimed that despite several attempts to raise the issue, including a letter to Police headquarters, no action was taken.

Meanwhile, Mr Groenewald said the matter had reached his office.

“In this case communication is very important when working with Police, but it would be easier to have a one-on-one discussion about the issue,” Mr Groenewald said.
