The Fiji Police Force is appealing to the Vanua and faith based organizations to assist them in capturing the five runaway inmates who are also suspected to have been involved in the spate of robberies in the last two days.

Briefing the media this afternoon,  Director Operations SSP Rusiate Tudravu said these men are members of the community and it will not help if they are assisted.

“We appeal to the families to help us to recapture them,” said Tudravu.

He said anyone who is found to have assisted these escapees will be facing the hard hands of the law.

However, he said they are getting to hard leads as people are stepping forward to give information.

In their joint effort with the military and the prison department, the operation is getting positive response, however Tudravu warns members of the public to avoid making hoax calls regarding robberies at certain supermarkets and banks.

“Please refrain from doing this!. This has caused a lot of panic to the public at large.”

Meanwhile, SSP Tudravu said they are working to improve their services and free toll line.

He said it was not their fault that they did not receive the emergency call from BSP yesterday as it is was the technical problem of the service provider.

He has reassured the public that they are committed in carrying out their duty which solely is to protect all citizens of the country.
