Police investigate

THE Fiji Police Force has confirmed receiving some complaints on breaches of the Electoral Decree.

Despite not being able to reveal the number of complaints recorded, Commissioner of Police Ben Groenewald said they received complaints on a daily basis.

“In fact this morning (yesterday), we received a complaint from a political party indicating that some political parties do not abide by the election blackout period and also some vehicles were allegedly damaged last night,” Mr Groenewald said. “Yes, it is an ongoing issue and we must accept that we can get more of these complaints prior to the election and after the election.

“We are keeping records of all complaints.”

He said that police continued to monitor the situation on a 24-hour basis and they had the election task force team and the regular force who were to maintain law and order.

“All complaints received are registered and they are handed over to FICAC for investigations.”

Yesterday, police said a political party vehicle was allegedly stoned at Wainibuku outside Nasinu.
