Republic of Fiji Military Forces Commander Rear Admiral Viliame Naupoto is expected to receive a report today on the situation of the grounded Royal Fiji Navy Ship (RFNS) Kiro.

The Navy vessel has been grounded at Cakauyawa Reef near Makuluva Island, off Suva since Friday. (July 22)

Commander Naupoto said the outcomes of the reports would determine the salvaging of the grounded vessel.

A team of 17 seamen were also at grounding site to monitor and assess the RFNS Kiro while a support team is based at Nukulau Island.

The RFNS Kiro is one of the five vessels of Fiji Naval Squadron overseeing the patrolling of Fiji’s 200 mile Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
