Minister for National Disaster Management Inia Seruiratu has said there was nothing sinister about a video clip of soldiers sorting out clothes for victims of Tropical Cyclone Winston.

Mr Seruiratu said he had received confirmation from the Commissioner Western, Manasa Tagicakibau, that they were sorting out the clothes at the Lautoka yard.

The Minister said the soldiers were getting the cartons of clothes from the containers to a truck.

He said some of the cartons were torn and the soldiers had to find replacements.

He said it was usual for them to try out clothes but they were not taking them home.

Mr Seruiratu said he did not know why the video was posted on a Facebook forum.

He said the video was taken to create the impression that the soldiers were seen to be stealing.

Mr Seruiratu said the soldiers were just carrying out their work.
