A 38yr old man who allegedly contravened his 14 day mandatory isolation after returning from overseas will be questioned by Police once cleared by Medical Authorities.
The individual was directed to self-isolate after returning from New Zealand and allegedly left his place of isolation in New Town Settlement earlier this week.
A team conducting checks on those directed to self-isolate went to his home to inquire about his status and found him missing and they were informed that he had gone shopping.
He was processed and released back into isolation and will be brought in again for questioning after he completes the 14day isolation period.
In another case a 25year old man was arrested in Caubati and charged for allegedly breaching the Lautoka lockdown conditions after he left Lautoka on the 27th of March.
He will be produced at the Nasinu Magistrates Court tomorrow.
The continuous breaches of the restrictions are a serious concern because of the threats and risks involved, and needs to stop.
The Fiji Police Force is dealing with an invisible threat that can only be effectively destroyed if everyone works together to stop its spread by adhering to the movement restrictions placed on the Lautoka area, as well as complying with the Ministry of Health and Service’s advice with regards to self-isolation.
Police have processing teams all over the five Divisions who will handle these cases as they are received and we acknowledge the support of members of the public who have been forthcoming with information about the suspected breaches in their communities.
