 No Guns Missing From Armory: RFMF

 

Brigadier-General Ro Jone Kalouniwai says no guns are missing from the Re­public of Fiji Military Forces armory.

The RFMF Chief of Staff was responding to speculations that guns were missing from its armory.

Brigadier-General Ro Joni said all the ammu­nition and weapons stock were accounted for and have not been reported missing.

Speculation had surfaced in some quarters af­ter a bag of ammunition was found along the roadside in Lautoka last week.

Last Friday at Navula Road junc­tion in Lautoka, a 54-year-old man found a garbage bag containing a green pouch with 1 x 30 rounds and two loose calibre 5.56mm bullets and reported the matter to Police.

Brigadier-General Ro Jone said the RFMF team in Lautoka was investigating the matter. He expects to get an updated report to­day.

As for the findings of the investigations he said a board of inquiry would be held later to further investigations on the matter.

Police Commissioner Brigadier-General Siti­veni Qiliho had clarified that the ammunition found last Friday were different from those found last year.
