February 18, 2016 7:05 pm
Police have warned people to stop posting pictures of alleged offenders and deceased people on social media.
Police Chief of Operations ACP Rusiate Tudravu has reacted strongly to what he says is disrespect for the rule of law and the dignity of individuals.
The latest being uncensored, bloody images of accident victims and a picture of a man alleged to have raped his seven month old daughter.
“It is a disrespect for the family for those that have passed away and also it can affect investigation on all those that are on our suspect list and we are still having them under investigation so it is not fair to have comments on them on facebook when they are not being produced in court.”
ACP Tudravu says any complaint of this nature, will be fully investigated and people will be charged where-ever necessary.
Under the law, every person charged with an offence is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
