Justice Ajmeer says the Fiji Government has committed and agreed to sign the United Nations Convention Against Torture and this should be respected by the security forces especially the Police Force.

He says Section 11.1 of the constitution guarantees each person the right to freedom from torture of any kind and from cruel, inhumane, degrading severe treatment.

Meanwhile, Police are investigating alleged plots to destabilize the government.

Email correspondence was discovered by an internet shop owner which spoke about ministers in government and Acting Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho.

The alleged plot came to light after an internet shop owner of Lautoka was allegedly physically abused with a hot rod by police officers in the West.
