Minister for Defence, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola yesterday challenged negative comments by Opposition MPs on the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces and Fiji Police Force.

SODELPA MP, Mosese Bulitavu, claimed that Budget allocated to the RFMF over the last two years mainly focused on salary and allowances.

He added Fijians were deeply concerned about the manner in which the RFMF Commander was silent whereas the Chief of Staff through media statements threatened leaders and political groups.

Ratu Inoke in response said the comments by Mr Bulitavu were irresponsible and misleading, and that they couldn’t go unchallenged.

The Constitution, Mr Bulitavu said, didn’t allow RFMF to be the political referee of this nation but their role was to step in when the Police couldn’t maintain law and order.
