FB post probe

THE Police Criminal Investigations Department has launched an investigation into a Facebook post where a man allegedly posted a picture of a child and commented that he would like to perform an indecent act with her.

Police chief of investigations, ACP Luke Navela said the CID team established the post and would start investigations today.

In the post, which has gone viral, the man expressed his interest to perform a sexual act on a girl about four to five years old.

Fiji Women’s Rights Movement executive director Tara Chetty said it was good to note that police had started investigations.

“That’s clearly a police matter. Violence against women and girls including sexual violence is a serious problem in Fiji,” she said.
