Update: 3:55PM THE Fiji Police Force has closed its investigations into a video uploaded on Youtube claiming that Fijian citizens were being shot to death by Asian fishermen.

Police Commissioner Ben Groenwald said their investigations have proven the two men being shot were not Fiji citizens.

"Furthermore it has been established that the video was first viewed in mid-2013, and had been circulating in Fiji in March 2014," he said.

"Two former fishing vessel crews confirmed receiving the video from their friends.

"The investigation has also managed to establish that the video was shot outside of Fiji waters and involved a confrontation between Asian Fishing crews and pirates somewhere in the Indian Ocean."
