Police act

Mere Naleba
Wednesday, August 27, 2014

FOUR police officers have been suspended as investigations continue into the death of robbery suspect Vilikesa Soko.

This was announced by the Commissioner of Police Ben Groenewald, as the late Mr Soko's family buried him at the Nasinu Cemetary yesterday.

The identities of the four have been withheld.

Mr Groenewald said information that was tendered as evidence could not be shared with the public because investigations were continuing.

"I will say now that those involved will be subjected to the full force of the law and once we have completed our investigation, we will pass our findings to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions," Mr Groenewald said.

"I expect this to be very soon, but I want to stress to the public and especially to Vilikesa Soko's family that we are leaving no stone unturned in getting to the bottom of what happened. We want to be as thorough as possible so that all those responsible are brought to justice."

Mr Groenewald extended his condolences to the Soko family.
