29 arrests for alleged COVID-19 breach
There were 29 arrests made for breach of curfew last night.
The Southern Division recorded 21 arrests, seven cases while the Western Division had one case.
Both the Northern and Central Divisions recorded nil reports. Commissioner of Police BrigadierGeneral Sitiveni Qiliho said they anticipate cases of sporting breaches as we head into another week.
This was based on past trends. He reminded all Fijians that sporting activities are still prohibited. “Frequent patrols will be conducted and anyone who has information of these breaches taking place is requested to call the National Police Command Center on 9905 296 or their Divisional Command Centers.” Meanwhile, Police also confirmed that the investigation file into the alleged claims of assault involving Police Officers in Naqia is with the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for independent legal advice.
Chief of Intelligence and Investigations ACP Biu Matavou confirmed the file was sent last week.
“We will issue further comments once the file is returned,” he said.
