POLICE are looking for other suspects in connection with the killing of a local Chinese businessman during the Easter weekend.

The law enforcers said investigations into the killing of the businessman are still continuing.

Although six men have been charged by police in connection with the killing and produced in court, police said the Victoria Parade, Suva murder case was still open.

Criminal Investigations Department director Senior Superintendent of Police Vakacegu Toduadua confirmed this to The Fiji Times.

A local Chinese businessman was killed when he was getting into his vehicle on Victoria Parade at about 2.30am on April 8.

Three men in a vehicle pulled up as he was getting into his vehicle and one of them stabbed him several times in the back before the trio fled in the same vehicle.

Police have charged six people with the businessman's murder and they have been remanded in custody by the Suva Magistrates Court.

SSP Toduadua said police were still looking for some suspects in connection with the businessman's murder. "Investigations into that murder are still continuing, we haven't completed investigations yet and the Victoria Parade murder case is still open," he said.

"There are other likely suspects yet to be interviewed by police and we believe they are still here in Fiji."

SSP Toduadua said police were aware of the particulars of the suspects.
