PDP demands answers on death

Felix Chaudhary
Thursday, August 28, 2014

PEOPLE'S Democratic Party leader Felix Anthony says the government cannot not remain silent about the horrific death of Vilikesa Soko.

"The public needs answers to this tragic death," he said.

He claimed that the Commissioner of Police owed the family of the deceased and the public of Fiji an apology for saying that the death arose because the deceased was ill and did not take medication regularly.

"The death certificate appears to indicate injury and brutal force were the cause of death."

Mr Anthony said there was no excuse or justification if brutal force had been used on Mr Soko and called for an independent investigation into the incident.

"The PDP demands an answer from the government which has been mum over this issue.

"Will the Prime Minister continue to stand by his men who were responsible for the deaths of the last 10 people who lost their lives in a similar way?

"Will the Prime Minister also stand by his men in this case?

"The people deserve answers."
