Owners Urged To Claim Fuel, Cylinders

The Fiji Police Force is urging the owner of more than 30 drums of fuel and cylinders found on coastal areas of Taveuni to come forward and claim it.

It is understood the drums of kerosene, diesel, premix fuel, gas cylinders and timbers were found floating last Saturday by people near Salialevu Estate and villagers of Lavena on the northeast coast and Navakawau on the southern coast of the island.

The villagers have no idea where the materials came from.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the force was calling on the owner of the materials to come forward and claim it before the 31 days lost and found receipt lapses.

“Our officers from Taveuni have gone to these villages and collected the materials,” Ms Naisoro said.

“We have issued a lost and found receipt where the items are documented and given a 31-day grace period for it to be claimed by the owner.

“The first day of the 31-day period began when the materials were reported to Police by the villagers. If no one claims within that period then we will give it to the finder of the materials.

“We are asking the owner to please come forward and claim it before the grace period lapses,” she said.

Police said they have not received any report of a ship or a barge giving a distress call or reported sinking around Taveuni waters.
