Eliki (Aliki) Suka Kolin­isau, who is wanted for ques­tion­ing in re­la­tion to the death of his wife Naomi Kolin­isau, has re­port­edly been sighted in Aus­tralia. Suka’s dis­ap­pear­ance led to a na­tion-wide hunt by Po­lice. Two re­wards had been of­fered- $1000 by the Fiji Po­lice Force and $500 by the Crime Stop­pers Na­tional Board for any in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to his ar­rest. Noth­ing con­crete has been forth­com­ing.

It is al­leged that Suka set alight the man­ager’s quar­ters of Nata­vora Restau­rant and Mu­sic Bar along Co­ral Coast in De­cem­ber, 2013.

His wife died af­ter sus­tain­ing 60 per cent burns. Their daugh­ter sur­vived.

Well placed Po­lice sources say Suka, who would be 70 now, is in Syd­ney, Aus­tralia and trav­els ex­ten­sively. Sources say that he does not stay at one place for long.

Sources also con­firm that his Fi­jian bank ac­count has re­mained un­touched since he dis­ap­peared. Po­lice had man­aged to trace a mobile phone that he was us­ing in Syd­ney, but fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions led to a dead end.

For a while, Po­lice had been baf­fled by his dis­ap­pear­ance and at one stage, his jacket was found hang­ing from a tree in a bush. Po­lice sources now say that the jacket was planted there as a red her­ring. Suka was also put on a watch list by Po­lice and sources con­firm that he did not fly out of the coun­try. It is be­lieved that he may have been as­sisted to flee the coun­try in a yacht.

WANTED... Eliki (Aliki) Suka.
