Security in Parliament has been beefed up to ensure the safety of our parliamentarians.

Starting today, all those entering would go through security checks with the use of hand held body scanners and walk-through metal detectors, says the Minister for Defence, Timoci Natuva.

“We are trying to reinforce security within the Parliament premises,” Mr Natuva said.

“This is a way to help Police maintain security and ensure the safety of parliamentarians.

“Everybody who enter Parliament will have to go through the process.”

This is the first time for the Fijian Parliament, he said.

The Fiji Sun team in Parliament yesterday noticed the use of the equipment by Police officers yesterday.

The equipment are mainly used at access points at airports, embassies,  prisons, courthouses and airports to detect concealed metal weapons on a person’s body. Edited by Maikeli Seru
