A fishing company in Walu Bay is still awaiting answers from the Fiji Police Force as to why the locks to its office were broken and officers entered their office.

Sunshine Fisheries PTE Ltd employees got a shock of their lives when the officers, who were conducting a raid on the shop below, entered their office.

The alleged incident happened on Thursday, April 30, 2020.

Company Financial Controller Nilesh Ram said their office was left in a mess by the Police.

“I support the Police in their work, however, what they did to our office is not acceptable. The raid was done in the shop below ours, but our office was broken into, our surveillance cameras damaged and the recorder taken,” Mr Ram said.

He said reports in the media had made it look as if their company had been a target of the raid.

He said in business, reputation was important and the incident had damaged theirs.

According to Police, the money and the drugs were found at the bottom shop, which has no relation to the company.

Sunshine Fisheries PTE Ltd has no association with the shop that was situated at the ground level. Sunshine Fisheries PTE Ltd is a tenant at the premises.

The company is also awaiting a response from the Police regarding damage to their property.
