Police clamps down on unauthorised use of govt vehicles
June 25, 2012 5:22 am
All Government vehicles seized for operating after hours without a proper permit will only be released upon authorisation from the Prime Minister’s office.
The Fiji Police Force says it was authorised by the government to clamp down on the unauthorised use of state vehicles around the country.
Director Police Operations, SSP Rusiate Tudravu says of the nine vehicles seized, five were from the Western division, while four were seized in the Central Eastern division.
“This was done for us to know whether the run made by the vehicles was authorised by the departmental heads or was it made for personal use.”
Tudravu says the exercise is part of a joint effort to see transparency and better service to the people.
