Force recalls duo to duty

TWO of the nine police officers who were suspended last year have been cleared and recalled to their duty.

This was confirmed by the chief operations officer Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu on Friday.

The nine, including a senior officer were suspended last September for alleged corrupt dealings.

ACP Tudravu said the first phase of investigations had been completed where the duo were proven to be free from the allegation.

"But the rest are still suspended and an internal investigation is underway," he said.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Police Force has reminded its staff that no officer is above the law and that any officer found engaging in corrupt or illegal dealings would be thoroughly investigated and punished accordingly.

ACP Tudravu said the nine officers were sent home for alleged corrupt dealings with various members of the public.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua said because the organisation was always exposed to temptations by criminal, officers had to uphold the law.

"We see that as our biggest challenge, to withstand those temptations and behave like police officers," Brig-Gen Naivalurua said.
