Driver in custody

Shayal Devi
Tuesday, April 22, 2014

A MAN is in police custody for allegedly attempting to bribe a policeman in Nadi on Saturday.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said traffic officials were deployed all across the country in conjunction with the Easter long weekend.

"They adopted a zero tolerance stand on running offences," she said.

"As such a minibus driver was taken into custody on Saturday night after 11pm for allegedly attempting to bribe a police officer after he was stopped by a traffic operation team at the Votualevu roundabout in Nadi.

"The suspect was stopped by the officer after he was seen dropping off passengers at the roundabout."

According to Ms Naisoro, upon being booked, the suspect offered ten dollars to the officer.

"He was, however, subsequently arrested and taken to the Namaka Police Station."

Director traffic SSP Mahesh Mishra said traffic officials continued their operations yesterday.

"This is an attempt to achieve zero fatalities on our roads over the long weekend, and motorists must be aware this is being conducted for their safety and other road users and such behaviour was not condoned."
