Police laxity angers woman

Salaseini Moceiwai

A LABASA woman has expressed her frustrations about the attitude of police personnel who she claims failed to attend to her complaints.

Emma Chute said she approached the station to lodge a report against a police personnel who allegedly threatened her last Friday.

"I went there (station) to lodge a complaint and after doing this, the personnel on duty picked up the phone to make some calls ignoring me," she said.

"So I made a call and the call was transferred from one personnel to another and this continued for some time.

"When I asked them about my case, one of them said that they couldn't do much about it."

Divisional police commander northern SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau said he was not aware of the matter.

However, he said any complaint against the service or the police had to be lodged with their Internal Affairs Unit at Namuka House and not at the Labasa Police Station.
