'Co-operate' with police

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, April 26, 2014

POLICE have once again pleaded for the public's co-operation with their investigations following an incident where a 49-year-old unemployed Savusavu man has been charged with a count of giving false information.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro yesterday said the accused, on two different occasions, told police officers that his son who was wanted for arrest, was not home at the time of inquiry.

"The following day when questioned again, he (accused) stated his son hadn't been home since the previous day," she said.

"However, information was later received from someone else that the accused's son was in fact in their home.

"The accused has been charged with one count of giving false information and bailed. He is expected to appear in the Savusavu Magistrates Court today," Ms Naisoro said.

She said Acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan earlier stated that resources could be better channelled when the right information was forthcoming.

"The Acting Commissioner is, therefore, once again requesting members of the public to co-operate with officers during the course of an investigation."
