Update: 10:40AM ACTING Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan says the force is committed to ensuring a thorough investigation is carried out into the death of 13-year-old Sereima Degei.

The teen was found hanging from a tree in her village of Nabouciwa in Tailevu in September 2007.

Her case was reopened after an inquest overruled initial police findings stating her death was the result of suicide.

The commissioner's comments came after questions arose from concerned parties on why no arrests had been made yet.

I am giving my personal assurance that a detailed investigation is currently being carried out by the Criminal Investigations Department and we cannot give a time frame as to when it will be completed, Mr Narayan said.

It must be understood that we must gather the necessary evidence before we can lay any charges, and we must make sure our case is solid before we proceed with such action."

The Acting Commissioner is also overseeing the progress of the investigation and says members of the public must be patient.
