The Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tions

De­part­ment is head­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion with re­gards to an al­leged com­plaint against Po­lice of­fi­cers lodged at the Vatuk­oula Po­lice Sta­tion.

The com­plainant, a 20-year-old farmer of Na­tolevu, claimed he was as­saulted by Po­lice of­fi­cers when he was ar­rested for an al­leged case of theft of live­stock, which was found slaugh­tered in the Na­tolevu Vil­lage moun­tains on March 27.

A team from the CID Head­quar­ters is con­duct­ing in­ter­views.

All re­ports against Po­lice of­fi­cers and ser­vices will be in­ves­ti­gated thor­oughly and dealt with ac­cord­ingly through our in­ter­nal dis­ci­plinary pro­cesses and if charged, of­fi­cers will be pro­duced in Court, Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Bri­gadier Gen­eral Si­tiveni Qil­iho said.
