The Fiji Police have rejected the National Federation Party application for a permit to march on Thursday because it failed to submit required documents.

The party failed to submit clearance letters from the Fiji Roads Authority and the Suva City Council.

Police Commissioner, Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho said the party submitted the application on October 2.

“The Divisional Police Commander Southern had written back to them requesting that they submit it with the clearance letter from the Fiji Roads Authority and the Suva City Council, which they had failed to do until now (yesterday).”

Last week, NFP lodged an application with the Fiji Police Force for a permit to march on Fiji Day.

The march was said to protest against the ongoing Police investigations into the alleged assault claim of suspended Member of Parliament Pio Tikoduadua by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

The Police Commissioner has also confirmed that in the next few days, it will be sending the investigation documents to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
