Police cite indecent insult as daily occurrence

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, May 27, 2014

POLICE in the Northern Division continue to receive reports of indecent insult or indecent annoying of persons on a daily basis.

Speaking to students of USP Labasa campus during an educational awareness program last Friday, Corporal Farida Bi said this was a common offence committed by many people daily.

"We continue to receive reports from different people almost every day on such offences," she said.

"If a person is not happy about what someone else said or did to him or her, they choose to come to the station to lodge a report.

"It can just be a touch, word or gesture that annoys the complainant and this can be taken to the station.

"This offence is very common among students because they usually joke and play around a lot."

Cpl Bi advised the students to be mindful of their behaviour and not to annoy their colleagues, families and others.

"It's very important to be mindful of what you say and do so you don't offend or insult another." USP Student Association chairman Asheem Khan said they were happy to have organised such an eye-opening educational program.

The police, Health Ministry and the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre took part in the program.
