Police is investigating claims of sexual harassment lodged by former National Federation Party (NFP) provisional candidate, Hiroshi Taniguchi’s wife.

The complaints are against NFP leader, Biman Prasad. This was confirmed by Mr Taniguchi.

In a press conference last month, Mr Taniguchi had alleged that Mr Prasad had ‘often called and sent nasty text messages to his wife’.

The complaint was lodged at the Totogo Police Station on October 18, 2022.

Commissioner of Police, Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho confirmed the complaints had been lodged and said the report was being investigated by the Criminal Investigations Department.

“The wife (Mr Taniguchi’s) filed the report alleging she was sexually harassed on two different occasions,” Brigadier-General Qiliho said.

Mr Prasad was contacted by the Fiji Sun for comments.

He asked what the call was about and upon being informed of the allegations, Mr Prasad said: “I don’t speak to the Fiji Sun, you know that. Thank you. Bye.
