Harbouring is a crime

NASIK SWAMI
Tuesday, August 14, 2012

THE possibility that the five escapees are being harboured is of concern to police.

Police acting chief of operations Senior Superintendent Rusiate Tudravu said compared to the huge deployment of police officers and support from the military, an arrest should have been made.

“It could be said that the people are still harbouring the five escapees somewhere,” SSP Tudravu said.

He said this had hampered efforts by police.

He warned members of the general public that it was a criminal offence to harbour a prisoner.

“Under the Crimes Decree anyone caught harbouring an escaped prisoner could face a seven year jail term.”
