TWO policemen from Lautoka Police Station believed to have been involved in the alleged assault of a minor have been charged with disciplinary offences and are now awaiting internal tribunal proceedings.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the decision was made by Acting Police Commissioner Ravi Narayan.

"The findings of the internal investigation found that the two had allegedly breached police practices and procedures in dealing with a person kept in police custody," she said.

"The two remain suspended pending the outcome of the internal tribunal.

"The head of the Fiji Police Force has once again reiterated that he will not condone or entertain any officers who abuse their power while executing their duties."

Following the incident, a stern warning was issued to all members of the police force by Mr Narayan.
