FIJI’S policing landscape has grown significantly and policing efforts in Fiji and abroad have been aided through the support of international law enforcement agencies.

Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho made this comment while briefing three outgoing Fijian diplomats based on the ongoing bilateral work pursued by the Fiji Police Force towards strengthening relations with international policing jurisdictions and law enforcement agencies.

The briefing was conducted for Deputy Permanent Representative Geneva Anare Leweniqila, Deputy Permanent Representative New York Agnes Harm, and Councilor Canberra Mission Salote Tagivakatini.

Brig-Gen Qiliho said the Force wanted to keep the momentum going in Geneva, New York through the U.N and Australia.

“We will be working closely with your respective High Commissions to further expand the growing list of bilateral arrangements with our international partners,” he said.

“The Fiji Police works closely with Ambassador Nazhat Shammem as Fiji’s Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva since Fiji had ratified in particular the Convention against Torture or UNCAT, and any assistance that can be directed our way to help further improve our compliance will be great.”
