National Federation Party Leader has hit out at the disrespectful arrogance of the national security agencies, the Fiji Police Force and the RFMF, and the manner in which they swooped in to take Bau Chief, Ratu Epenisa Cakobau, from his home early this morning.
“This is the height of insolence when public funds are used to intimidate individuals in a traditional customary law setting, with no word all day on what Ratu Epenisa Cakobau has done that justified such thuggery.”
Why has the Fiji Police Force involved itself in what appears to be a civilian matter? What circumstances justified such a dramatic show of brute force?
Will taxpayers be happy with this unnecessary antagonism during the upcoming 2018-2019 Budget announcement only 20 days away, and be comforted that the use of their taxes is justifiable in the national security allocation?
We call on the Minister for Defence to explain this highly unsatisfactory situation with urgency.
