Police probe complaints

Nasik Swami
Saturday, May 10, 2014

THE Fiji Police Force says it is still investigating complaints lodged by former opposition leader Mick Beddoes.

Mr Beddoes alleged that Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Retired) Voreqe Bainimarama, Women's Minister Dr Jiko Luveni, the Fiji Sun newspaper, Razor, CJ Patel, Fiji Village and Fiji Broadcasting Corporation had breached the Political Parties Decree.

He also alleged the use of Fiji's Coat of Arms by Rear Admiral (Retired) Bainimarama for his proposed political organisation's bus was wrong.

Police chief operations officer ACP Rusiate Tudravu said there was no timeframe for the investigation.

"I cannot say how long. My comment is that we are still investigating," ACP Tudravu said yesterday.

"It's (investigation time) being decided by our CID headquarters team."

ACP Tudravu said the investigation was a normal one and there was no delay.

"We don't have a timeframe for investigations — it's normal as other investigations.

"Because it's a report against the Prime Minister so the people want us to investigate quickly?"

In his complaint, Mr Beddoes stated that Rear Admiral (Retired) Bainimarama along with the persons and organisations he had complained against have been promoting and holding the Prime Minister and his current organisation out to be a political party for some time now without the party being registered.
