Insufficient evidence leads to case being closed: Police

No charges will be laid on an iTaukei Land Trust Board (TLTB) employee who was alleged to have assaulted a 62-year-old grandmother in Macuata Province earlier this year.

Meanwhile, an email sent to TLTB deputy general manager operations, research and development Solomone Nata requesting for an update on their side of investigation proved had not been replied to when ths edition went to press.
