COMPOL concerned on how drug related matters are solved by teachers

COMMISSIONER of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho has expressed concerns about information received regarding school teachers solving drug related matters internally and their alleged failure to report the matter to Police.

Brig-Gen Qiliho said the practice is serious, and failure to report drug related incidents will result in a separate investigation for the school’s administrator and the teacher that fails to report.

He said the matter has been discussed with the Ministry of Education with an agreement reached to quickly address the issue.

Meanwhile police officers will be kept busy this coming week attending various events commemorating International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking in schools across Fiji.
