'Sensitive case'

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, July 31, 2014

POLICE in Labasa have recovered a coconut processing machine after its owners lodged a report against a training centre for allegedly using the equipment without paying them.

Spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri yesterday said there was a misunderstanding between the two parties resulting in the situation.

"We are aware of the matter and the police visited the centre to seize the specialised coconut processing machine," he said.

"This is a sensitive case and we are thoroughly investigating it.

"It's understood that the machine was given to the centre by the owners as a result of an agreement but was used for a different purpose."

When contacted yesterday, the owner who spoke on conditions of anonymity, said the matter was with the police.

He said he would not make comments on the issue.

Insp Sokomuri added: "This is all we can say at this point in time as investigations continue."
