Fiji’s Police Force Chief Operations Officer, ACP Rusiate Tudravu has told FijiLive that they cannot make a comment on Epeli Qaraniqio until they sight his medical report.

Qaraniqio is one of the five recaptured escapees who had fled from the Naboro Medium Facility Centre last month and had to be admitted to CWM Hospital for medical care for injuries they were alleged to have sustained when they were apprehended by the disciplinary forces.

ACP Tudradvu confirmed that Qaraniqio’s right leg had been amputated and he is still at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital under medical supervision.

“There is nothing to be quiet about as reported by media because the Police Force is still awaiting a medical report from CWMH on Qaraniqio’s condition,” ACP Tudravu added.

He further said that until the doctors at the hospital give the go-ahead Police cannot interrogate Qaraniqio.
Meanwhile, Director of Public Prosecution lawyer Lisiate Fotofili said that Qaraniqio could not attend Court as his right leg had been amputated because of an open wound.
