PA lodges report with Police against Sayed-Khaiyum

The People’s Alliance Party has lodged a police report against the General Secretary of the FijiFirst Party, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum this afternoon for making comments to incite racial hatred and violence.

According to PA General Secretary Sakiasi Ditoka, Sayed-Khaiyum is alleged to have made the comments at a press conference at the Fiji First headquarters yesterday where he claimed some Indo-Fijian families in Ba were victims of violence this week.

The police report was lodged by Ditoka, at the Central Police Station in Suva.

“I ask the police to investigate Sayed-Khaiyum as the General Secretary of the Fiji First Party for inciting communal antagonism contrary to sections 65(2)(a)(i) and 53(1) of the Crimes Act2009,” said Ditoka.

“Further, I am of the view that Sayed-Khaiyum also committed sedition contrary to section 67(1)(c) read with sections 45 and 51 of the Crimes Act.”

“Party Leader, Sitiveni Rabuka did not encourage division, in fact, the people are relieved and thankful that change can be affected and is now imminent,”

“Our Party has never orchestrated or directed any violence or division. All we have been pleading for to the people is calm, restraint and respect,” Ditoka added.
