ANOTHER senior police officer has been charged for allegedly threatening a complainant in the Western Division.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the officer would face an internal tribunal proceeding for alleged misconduct.

"That has been deemed as a breach in police practices and procedures," said Ms Naisoro.

The officer is currently on leave and a date will be set for the tribunal proceedings.

Meanwhile, the investigation into two alleged incidents of police brutality in the West is now focusing on the two complainants for allegedly giving false information.

Ms Naisoro said as a result of a report published in The Fiji Times, a team from the Internal Affairs Department conducted a thorough investigation into the allegations of assault.

She said the team found no substance to the claims made by the complainants.

However, Zameer Khan and Feroz Khan yesterday maintained they were assaulted by police during their caution interviews for alleged crimes committed in February.
