Military lends support to Police

The military will be supporting the Fiji Police Force in their clamp down on the use of government vehicles after hours says Director Police Operations Rusiate Tudravu.
The duration of the operation is not known but the message from the government is clear on the need for civil servants to be transparent in their course of duty.
Tudravu says Police officers on the ground are the ones handling the operation.
" No..no…this does not mean that the military is back. Police officers are playing the lead role while the military personnel are just there to support them."
Tudravu adds there will be no fixed check points as snap check points can be set up at any place in any given time.
“No one will expect us to be at any place in any given time. It can happen anywhere and is just random.”
A total of nine vehicles were seized during the operation last weekend.
