Operation Waradi

Shayal Devi
Monday, January 20, 2014

A NEW operation launched by the police will target pending bench warrants from 2013.

Operation Waradi started last week and West police media liaison Naina Ragigia said people not attending court would be taken to task.

"We want to execute all warrants and make sure that people are taking heed of the bench warrants," she said.

"There have been a lot of pending bench warrants so we want to clear these in the first quarter."

With the new school year starting on Tuesday, Mrs Ragigia said they were also starting to increase police presence on the streets as parents finish last minute shopping for their children's school supplies.

"There is a vast movement of people, especially those who are doing their shopping and the students who are heading back to boarding schools. There is a lot of traffic and movement so we are doing our best to keep this time incident-free."

Mrs Ragigia said police operation and patrol had stepped up a notch since commercial activity — generated by tourists' arrival in Lautoka — was increasing.
