Assault claim filed

A REPORT has been lodged with the Fiji Police Force regarding a 17-year-old student who was allegedly assaulted by a school principal in Tailevu earlier this month.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro confirmed the incident.

Ms Naisoro said a report was lodged at the Nadi Police Station after the student informed her mother about the alleged incident.

“The alleged incident took place on the 14th (February) at the school, but the victim, a 17-year-old student, told her mother where a report was lodged at the Nadi Police Station and referred to Korovou for investigation,” Ms Naisoro said.

She said the suspect was questioned and the case file forwarded to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in Suva.
