The Dux of the Ad­vanced Pros­e­cu­tion Course 2019, Con­sta­ble Leone Vu­ruka­nia has ded­i­cated his award to all Po­lice of­fi­cers. Mr Vu­ruka­nia, who is orig­i­nally from Wailo­tua in Wainibuka, Tailevu, said he did not ex­pect to get the Dux award.

He has been a Po­lice of­fi­cer for the past 15 years and is based at the crime branch at Nadi Po­lice Sta­tion. “This six weeks course will help in re­gard to in­ves­ti­ga­tion, how to ob­tain ev­i­dence, re­li­a­bil­ity and ad­mis­si­bil­ity of ev­i­dence,” he said.

“It was all about pos­i­tive mind­set, dis­ci­pline, com­mit­ment and con­sis­tency.”

Mr Vu­ruka­nia said the course also taught him about build­ing a case, pro­ce­dures of pros­e­cu­tion, con­duct in court, fair trial and rights of the ac­cused per­son.

“I didn’t ex­pect to get the Dux award. This is the first time that I have re­ceived an award and I guess it was through my com­mit­ment and hard work.

“I thank the Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tions, Christo­pher Pryde and the Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice Bri­gadierGen­eral Si­tiveni Qil­iho for the course.

“This award is ded­i­cated to all the men and women of the Fiji Po­lice Force who are on the frontline,” said Mr Vu­ruka­nia.
