Interview Rooms To Get New Gear

The Fiji Police Force will upgrade its interview rooms in Suva and Nadi soon.

Commissioner of Police Bernardus Groenewald said this was made possible through sponsors from the Office of the Chief Justice.

“We have interview rooms and the problem is the equipments are outdated, and the Chief Justice had come forward to assist us. So in a month or two our interview rooms in Nadi and Suva will be upgraded, which will have a state-of-the-art equipment,” Mr Groenewald said.

He said this was a crucial concept in terms of democracy.

“Interviews would be done through close circuit television (CCTV) after the upgrading of the rooms.”

While addressing graduates during the National Prosecution Course in Nasova last Friday, Chief Justice Anthony Gates said: “With the availability of a video DVD of the interview, those lengthy trials-within-trials need not take place.

“Additionally accused captured on video freely admitting to crimes and providing information that no-one else could have known will result in fewer trials.”

He said the video recording of interviews during investigations would ensure that correctly identified accused were brought to court and convicted on credible admissible quality evidences.
