Police monitors social media posts

August 6, 2018 4:59 am

Threats of violence in heated exchanges on social media in regard to the deadly accident over the weekend are being closely monitored by Police.

Police Spokesperson Ana Naisoro confirmed this to FBC News as Police currently look into the details of the accident.

Naisoro says people should give respect to the families involved in the accident and nasty exchanges on social media should not happen as those caught doing it can be taken to task.

“It affects others because the social media works in such a way and its not something that is confined to your own circle, it will be shared and people will take screen shots and it will also cause lot of anxiety.”

With supporters of the Ratu Navula team died in the weekend collision while on their way to the Dean’s semi-final, police are concerned about an overly-emotional crowd at this weekend’s final.

Naisoro says it is important for people to be mindful of posting social media comments and pictures of anything in relation to the accident.

Investigation of the accident continues.
