We are in a difficult situation right now and we should not to take advantage of the vulnerable, says Brigadier-General  Sitiveni Qiliho.

The Acting Commissioner of Police was reacting to the first case of alleged sexual harassment at one of the evacuation centres in Savusavu.

“We want to remind people to control themselves in these situations –

“This case is being investigated and the perpetrator will be brought to justice.”

 

Maintaining security

Brigadier-General Qiliho said they continued to do their work in maintaining the security situation around the country.

Despite the total and partial loss of property suffered by some policemen and women, he maintained that morale in the force was high.

Those affected will be given days off and will be offered other assistance from within the force.

“We are looking at ways to help in terms of collecting items, cooking utensils and money to help our men and women who have been affected by severe Tropical Cyclone Winston.”

 

 Viti Levu Police posts

On Thursday and Friday, Brigadier-General Qiliho visited those officers serving in the affected areas around Viti Levu.

“Our Police post in Nalawa, Ra was destroyed. Other posts have sustained damage in places like Vatukoula and Rakiraki and are uninhabitable.”

A directive was also issued by the Acting-Police Commissioner to immediately replace vehicles damaged during and after severe Tropical Cyclone Winston.
