Dad awaits results

NINE years later and a father is still waiting for news about what happened to his son during a fishing trip in 2005.

Sheik Azam, 60, of Wairabetia, Lautoka, said he had yet to see the investigative report about his son's disappearance.

Mr Azam said his son disappeared during a fishing trip with a colleague in Sigatoka and had been presumed dead.

"At first, I did not believe it because my son (Azim Ali) was a very good swimmer and athlete. We searched Sovi Bay for 14 days, which is where he is believed to have gone missing but we did not find anything. To this day, we have not found his body."

West police spokeswoman Naina Ragigia said Mr Azam made several appointments to see the divisional police commander.

"We have now launched an investigation into this matter. The divisional commander directed a thorough investigation and there is a possibility of re-opening the case as the commander wants positive feedback to be given to the family."
