Police call for calm and respect

The Fiji Police Force is calling for calm and is urging all Fijians to respect the political process, following the recent political developments.

In a statement, Police Commissioner, Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho said they are concerned about the number of reports of stoning incidents received last night targeting the homes and businesses of Fijians of Indian descent.

“We urge all Fijians to celebrate responsibly and with humility, and also request political party leaders to stress the same to their supporters.”

“The Chief Operations Officer (COO) Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Abdul Khan will be revisiting political party leaders today to discuss the same issues of concern.”

He said through community policing efforts, community visitations are being conducted throughout Fiji, targeting business operators, religious institutions, farming communities to provide assurance that we remain focused on ensuring a safe conducive environment for all Fijians during the post-election period.

“We also call on social media users to be mindful of what they post, so as not to create unnecessary panic and fear based on rumours and unsubstantiated information,” Qiliho said.
