ACTING Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan has terminated the services of Deputy Commissioner of Police Isikeli Ligairi.

In a statement issued yesterday, Mr Narayan said the decision to terminate Mr Ligairi was based on a case of insubordination against the office of the Acting Commissioner of Police.

"As members of the disciplinary force, every police officer is expected to display loyalty and uphold the law and give their support to whoever is commanding the Fiji Police Force," he said.

"This, however, was not the case for Mr Ligairi and I, as the head of the force, have made this decision for the good of the organisation and every Fijian."

Attempts to obtain a comment from Mr Ligairi, the former regional police commander Northern in 2010, were unsuccessful last night.
