Po­lice are ad­vis­ing mem­bers of the pub­lic to re­solve fam­ily is­sues pri­vately and stop try­ing to air their griev­ances pub­licly on so­cial me­dia.

This comes af­ter Po­lice in­ves­ti­gated an in­ci­dent where a se­nior cit­i­zen of Nadi is al­leged to have vented her frus­tra­tion on a so­cial me­dia site re­gard­ing her next of kin. Po­lice spokesper­son In­spec­tor Jo­saia We­icavu said the pub­lic should avoid mak­ing their rev­e­la­tion of what they face on so­cial me­dia which has be­come com­mon nowa­days. The sus­pect also made com­plaints about the ser­vices of the Po­lice. “If she has lodged a com­plaint in Nadi Po­lice Sta­tion the of­fi­cers will look into it,” In­spec­tor We­icavu said. “She can also go to Of­fice in Charge (OC) in Nadi and com­plain about what has been tran­spir­ing, and this com­plaint will be for­warded to head­quar­ters in Suva in which the In­ter­nal Af­fairs will look at.” Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Bri­gadierGen­eral Si­tiveni Qil­iho has also called on the pub­lic to come for­ward and lodge com­plaints if they were be­ing vil­i­fied on so­cial me­dia. His com­ments came af­ter a man from Si­ga­toka was ar­rested and charged for mak­ing deroga­tory re­marks against a mi­nor on Face­book.
