Fiji Customs arrest impersonators

Saturday, September 02, 2017

Update: 6:41PM THREE people are in Police custody for allegedly impersonating revenue and Customs officers in Fiji.

In a press conference held in capital Suva today, Fiji Revenue and Customs Service (FRCS) chief executive officer Visvanath Das said they were aware of impersonators who claimed to be revenue and Customs Officers.

He said they had received 20 complaints from taxpayers for the past two weeks.

He said they were sending a message to members of the public that there was no way the FRCS advised or gave a call before conducting a raid.

Mr Das said a special Police taskforce was now assisting the team with investigations.
