ROYAL Solomon Islands Police Force Commissioner John Lansley has shown great concern regarding a stabbing incident involving two Solomon Island students who were studying in Fiji.
Solomon Star reported that Police Commissioner Lansley said he had written to his Fijian counterpart about the reported detention of the two Solomon Islands students who were studying in Fiji.
Solomon Star reported that the Solomon Police Commissioner was still awaiting reply from his Fijian counterpart, saying the incident was really an issue for the Fijian police to handle.
He said the incident was quite sad because it might undermine the privilege of other Solomon Islands students studying in Fiji.
"It was also sad to see students behaving like this," Commissioner Lansley said.
"As students, they are our ambassadors and should behave well while in another country."
Solomon Star reported that Commissioner Lansley stated that his intention of writing to his Fijian counterpart was to ensure such incidents did not happen again.
Fiji Police Force spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the two students studying at the University of the South Pacific reportedly stabbed a Fijian man during a fight last week.
Inspector Sokomuri said the police force had received the report and they were still investigating the incident.
