The Commissioner of Fiji Police has sent out a directive for investigations after a case was dismissed by the Magistrates Court in Suva because the Police Prosecutor failed to produce disclosures contained in a file which is believed to have gone missing.

Fiji Police chief operations officer ACP Rusiate Tudravu said that the force is setting up a team to conduct investigations as directed by the Commissioner of Police on why and how the files went missing from the prosecutors.

“This is not the first case where the prosecutors were not able to produce disclosures in court because of which cases were dismissed but this investigation is not only for thius particular case but for the rest of the mishaps that had happened before,” ACP Tudravu added.

He also added that the Fiji Police force is utterly disappointed with what has happened and is certain that the force will carry out thorough investigations in regards to this matter.

A decision will be made on the next cause of action after the investigations.
