Fi­jian Navy Com­man­der John Fox is ex­pected to dis­close fur­ther de­tails on the Repub­lic of Fiji Navy Ship Kiro this week. The naval ship has been stuck on Cakauyawa Reef off Maku­luva Is­land af­ter it ran aground last month. Com­man­der Fox con­firmed that they would be hold­ing a press con­fer­ence and would re­spond to queries from the me­dia. “I am ex­pected to brief the RFMF com­man­der where we will dis­cuss about Kiro and from there he will de­cide which step to take next,” Com­man­der Fox said. At mo­ment they were mak­ing ev­ery ef­fort to sal­vage the ship, he said. Questions sent to the RFMF Com­man­der, Rear Ad­mi­ral Vil­iame Naupoto re­mained unan­swered when this edi­tion went to press. Mean­while, Com­man­der Marika Vo­sawale said last week that the Board of In­quiry into the RFNS Kiro was com­plete. Edited by Ranoba Baoa
