3 Fiji Police Officers Charged For Involvement In Alleged Police Brutality Case

Three Police Constables have been charged for their involvement in the case of alleged police brutality in Navua.

The Acting Director of Public Prosecutions after reviewing the investigation file has sanctioned that all three Police officers be charged with one count of Act Intended to Cause Grievous Harm according to Section 255(a) of the Crimes Act 2009.

All accused will be produced at the Navua Magistrates Court tomorrow.

As assured, a thorough investigation was conducted and also uncovered was an alleged case of bribery whereby the charge of Perverting the Cause of Justice is likely to be explored.

I have directed the immediate interdiction of all three Police Constables as they await the outcome of their court case, while a parallel internal investigation is being conducted whereby they will also face our internal disciplinary tribunal proceedings.
