POLICE Commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua has warned students of Suva Grammar School (SGS) and Marist Bothers' High School (MBHS) that anyone who breaks the law will be taken to task.
Brig-Gen Naivalurua visited the two schools yesterday and spoke to students about the concerns of the police force and of government with their behaviour.
His warning came as a MBHS student was charged with assault in connection with the attack on a school bus filled with SGS students on Monday.
The student, who is over the age of 18, was allowed to go home but is expected to appear in court tomorrow.
"I'm here to convey a simple message to you as your commissioner that anyone who breaks the law will be taken to task. You cross the line you will be taken to task. You break the law, as others who are in prison, you will be taken to task," Brig-Gen Naivalurua, a former student of MBHS, said.
He said Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama, also an old scholar of the school, expressed his concern and disappointment with the behaviour of the MBHS students.
"It is not worth it to take these risks this early in your life. Stop all the nonsense, don't be stupid and don't cross the line," he said.
"You've done enough damage to the school, mum and dad and those who see this place as their first home."
Late yesterday, a group of students of Cathedral Secondary School and Nabua Secondary School were involved in another brawl at the Suva bus stand, police said. Those involved were taken in for questioning.
Speaking to students of SGS, Brig-Gen Naivalurua said the behaviour of students in the school brawls bore a slight resemblance to the actions of the five prisoners who ran amok in Suva two weeks ago.
He told the students that they were the ones responsible for Fiji's future and their behaviour during the two school brawls was a bad reflection.
"The government and myself are very concerned. What is even more worrying is that these two schools are considered to be top schools."
