THE Fiji Police Force is investigating a complaint lodged by the former leader of opposition, Mick Beddoes, regarding the alleged wrongful use of Fiji's Coat of Arms by Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama for his proposed political organisation bus.

Confirming this, police chief operations officer Rusiate Tudravu said the complaint was lodged at the Sabeto Police Station in Nadi on April 10.

"I can confirm that he has lodged a complaint. We have received a report and preliminary investigations are ongoing," Mr Tudravu said.

In his complaint, Mr Beddoes claimed Rear Admiral Bainimarama and his associates allegedly breached the Coat of Arms of Fiji (Restriction of Use) Act — number 13 of 1972 and 14 of 1973 that prohibited the use of Coat of Arms.

Mr Beddoes also lodged a complaint last month against some individuals and organisations for allegedly breaching the provisions of the Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosures) Decree Number Four of 2013.

The complaint was also lodged at the Sabeto Police Station against Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama, Women's Minister Dr Jiko Luveni and the Fiji Sun newspaper.

He also lodged a complaint against Razor, CJ Patel, Fiji Village and Fiji Broadcasting Corporation for allegedly breaching the decree.

Mr Tudravu said they were also investigating this complaint.
