Review for Fiji Police As Criminals Among Them Found Out!

ALL those taken into the Fiji Police Force as special constables are being reviewed after some showed up with criminal charges, including robbery with violence.
Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri made the comments when asked how a man charged with robbery with violence became a police officer.
“He is no longer a member of the force and the Commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua does not want such people in the force,” he said.
Insp Sokomuri said the force was rectifying some of the “wrongdoings in the force so police are able to carry out their work diligently”.
He said some of these men were taken into the police force as part of the Christian Crusade under the command of the former commissioner.
Peni Rarawa in 2007 with four others robbed Superfoods Limited in 2007.
After being charged, he was enlisted in the Fiji Police Force as a special constable. Rarawa later did not attend his court case and a bench warrant was issued for him.
He was arrested and produced in the High Court in Suva where he was remanded.
Serial robber Saimoni Rokotunidau was admitted into the police force after a police evangelist program and later was arrested during a robbery while on the job as a special constable.
