The Fiji Police Force is advising social media users and party supporters to be cautious of what they post online especially leading up to the General Election, to ensure it doesn’t bring about differences.
This is after a mother and her two daughters received death threats from a fake account on Facebook because they were supporting a certain political party.
Police Spokesperson, Ana Naisoro says they are now investigating the alleged incident that took place a few weeks back on social media.
Naisoro also says the woman from Lautoka has officially lodged her complaint at the Lautoka Police Station yesterday.
30-year-old, Ashiana Begum claims she has been subject to death threats because of her support for the ruling FijiFirst.
Begum further claims a man using a fake account on Facebook has even gone to the extreme of mentioning that he would rape and murder her daughters who are one and 6-years-old.
