The Police Force and the Accident Compensation Commission have achieved another milestone with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding.
The MOU covers information sharing and relationship building between the two organizations.
It formalizes cooperation on statistics, investigation and even reporting – which is critical for the Accident Compensation Commission.
Brigadier General Qiliho says the partnership only formalizes the work they have been doing.
“We have a key role to play in terms of investigations into getting into some of those reports to the right place so these compensation claims can be dealt with promptly.”
The MOU was signed in Suva by Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho and ACCF Chief Executive Parvez Akbar.
Meanwhile, Akbar says to date, they’ve received over 460 applications claiming compensation for injuries and deaths from motor vehicle accidents.
The Commission has also this year begun compensating for injuries and deaths arising from workplaces and schools.
Over two million dollars has been paid out by the Commission.
