Five Police Officers Suspended

Five Police officers have been suspended with half pay awaiting the outcome of investigations to be conducted by the Internal Affairs Department with regards to issues of alleged inaction highlighted by the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The Acting Commissioner Rusiate Tudravu said the institution has no place for officers who are not able to fully commit themselves to their oath of providing service to the Fijian people.

He said all five officers who are involved in the investigation processes with regards to the two cases will be investigated for their alleged failure to conduct their duties and face possible removal from the institution if found guilty.

A/CP Tudravu said a lot of time and resources are directed towards an investigation, and failure to secure a positive outcome for the Prosecution is a bad reflection on the Fiji Police Force if the investigative processes were not followed.

The Acting Commissioner said he will not condone lazy officers as all are paid to serve the public honestly and dutifully and those who cannot, are not fit to be part of the policing profession.
