Fiji Sun - - Nation -

As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice Ru­si­ate Tu­dravu yes­ter­day re­quested par­ents and guardians to be open to the con­cerns of chil­dren af­ter an 11-year-old boy al­legedly com­mit­ted sui­cide. “The vic­tim al­legedly took his own life yes­ter­day at their home on the is­land of Ka­davu af­ter ini­tial re­ports re­ceived that he was dis­al­lowed from ac­com­pa­ny­ing his par­ents to Vu­nisea,” ACP Tu­dravu said. ACP Tu­dravu said the Fiji Po­lice Force was deeply con­cerned with this par­tic­u­lar case where a child was bold enough to al­legedly com­mit such an act. “Again the Fiji Po­lice does not want to point fin­gers at any­one in such sit­u­a­tions how­ever this re­news our call for us as adults to be vig­i­lant and alert to any changes in the be­hav­iour of our chil­dren and be more at­ten­tive to their needs,” he said. He said what adults may find in­signif­i­cant could mean a lot to them and by com­mit­ting more time to chil­dren we would get a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of their needs.
