Reports of so-called planned student brawls concern Police.

Divisional Police Commanders have been directed to have their officers conduct school visitations prior to the upcoming Coca-Cola Games next month.

The Fiji Police Force is concerned with information they have received about the resurgence of students involved in brawls.

“We are again issuing a warning that we will not hesitate to lay charges,” Police chief of operations ACP Rusiate Tudravu said in a statement yesterday.

“Students are reminded that there is a no drop policy with regards to assault cases. If we receive a report, we are not going to reconcile the matter. Charges will be laid and your case will then be dealt with the courts.

“Our main focus is to ensure no student is caught in a situation that could jeopardise their education.

This is a real possibility if they are arrested and charged, which is what we are trying to avoid through these awareness sessions.”

ACP Tudravu is calling on parents and guardians to help them by talking to their children about the need to avoid getting involved in brawls.

“Our officers will be visiting schools in the coming days and weeks as we want to get the message out to as many students as possible,” he said.
