Alleged bribery probe

Salaseini Moceiwai
Wednesday, July 02, 2014

A Labasa tertiary student has lodged an official complaint against a police officer who allegedly demanded $70 and assured him a place in the Fiji Police Force during the police recruitment drive.

Mohinesh Dutt Sharma of Vunivau said he was assured of a place in the force if he gave $70 to the officer.

"He came home during the second round of the police recruitment drive process sometimes in May and told me to give him the money because he would make arrangements for me to join the force," he said.

"I knew that this was inappropriate and so I decided to record our conversation on my phone but he didn't know I was doing this. He assured me that I would get a place and I told him that I would think about paying him.

"I didn't pay him because I knew this was wrong and that's why I saved our conversation to use it against him. This is something very serious and shouldn't be tolerated.

When contacted yesterday, divisional police commander northern SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau confirmed receiving the report, adding they were investigating the issue.
