Fiji and Malaysia have explored mutual co-operation in capacity building for Police officers.

This came about in a meeting between the Minister of Defence and National Security, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, and the Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Home Affairs,  Dato’ Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Ratu Inoke and DPM Hamidi discussed the constant and steady senior command training of Fijian Police officers in Malaysia. The Malaysian Ministry of Home Affairs will increase the current number of Police officers to be trained in Malaysia from one officer to two a year.

“The bilateral meeting also looked at the training of specialized police officers in the areas of forensic in disaster victim identification and toxicology,” Ratu Inoke said.

He also thanked Malaysia’s DPM for the support towards Fiji’s successful application for an Observer Status at the ASEANA Police.

They also discussed drug smuggling especially where Malaysia is working with China and Thailand to curb the drug-related challenges currently faced in South-eastern Asia and the Pacific.
