FIJI'S Commissioner of Police Ben Groenewald says he is determined to see that robbery suspect Vilikesa Soko's family is served justice.

In a strongly worded statement at a press briefing in Suva yesterday, he said no stone would be left unturned during their investigations.

"Let me explain...we had an internal investigation initially and there was an inquest because there was an unnatural death," Mr Groenewald said.

"The post-mortem was done and with the evidence collected through the investigation as well as the inquest I have decided to open a criminal investigation and we will as soon as possible keep you updated on it.

"This is a very serious and sensitive incident that happened and we are dealing with it."
