Five Police officers, accused of planting drugs into a vehicle of a 23-year-old man in April last year, were given a very special treatment by their colleagues at the Courthouse in Suva today.

The five are Police Constables Rusiate Tuga Ralase, 39, Simione Basulu, 29, Samuela Antonio, 24, Orisi Tukana, 24 and Police Inspector Apisalome Vesikula, 37.

In the effort to avoid media coverage, the officers were brought in earlier than 2.30pm today and were kept hidden inside the Juvenile Bureau office in the Government Building until the case was called. Media personnel were stopped from entering the courtroom to sit in for the case as the Police officers had surrounded the entrance of the courtroom and closed the door.

However, some media personnel managed to enter by way of arguing with the officers on the basis that the case was of public interest and the courtroom was open to the media to cover the case.
