THE Fiji Corrections Service warns members of the public in the North that it is a criminal offence to harbour escapees.

The warning comes as the search continues for inmate David Solomone who escaped from the Vaturekuka corrections facility in Labasa last week.

FCS public relations officer Kuini Waqasavou said Solomone escaped from a work party outside their Vaturekuka facility.

Ms Waqasavou said the 21-year-old escapee was originally from Tamala settlement in Savusavu.

She said Solomone was admitted on October 19th last year for the offence of burglary and theft and is serving a sentence of 18 months and 30 days.

"While a joint operation is currently being conducted by corrections officers and officers of the Fiji Police Force, we are appealing to the public for information on his whereabouts.

"A taskforce has also been set up in Savusavu by police officers who are also combing areas in Cakaudrove," Ms Waqasavou said.
