Naivalurua tours

Thursday, February 07, 2013

POLICE Commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua is on a nine-day visit to Indonesia.

Brig-Gen Naivalurua, who left Fiji last Friday, is accompanied by four senior police officers and officials of the Defence Ministry.

A police statement said the team was in Jakarta to engage with their counterparts in a working group (WG) session in relation to the implementation of a memorandum of understanding on police co-operation.

The MOU was signed on behalf of the force in Jakarta by the Defence Minister Joketani Cokanasiga in November, 2011. The commissioner paid a courtesy visit to his host counterpart General Timur Pradopo at his office on Monday.

During their discussions, Brig-Gen Naivalurua expressed gratitude to General Pradopo for agreeing to, and facilitating the WG session.

The MOU is the first to be signed between agencies of the governments after a Development Co-operation Agreement (DCA) was signed by Foreign Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola and his Indonesian counterpart, Dr Marty Natalegawa, in May 2011.

The team returns on Saturday.
