The Acting Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu is again calling for patience and understanding as investigators need time in compiling and gathering facts and evidence pertaining to a report lodged by Veronica Malani and says they cannot rush the investigation process.
Veronica Malani and her family had lodged a Police complaint against Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum earlier this year that had to do with alleged human rights abuses.
Malani is alleging that Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and his associates organised the making and detonation of home bombs around Viti Levu in order to injure and harm known Fijian targets sympathetic to the interim government, following the coups of May and September, 1987 by Sitiveni Rabuka.
Police confirmed Malani has been given progress reports of her case since the day her report was lodged and the senior investigating officer visited her home several times to brief her of the progress of her investigations.
Tudravu says investigators have communicated with the Investigating officer in the 1987 bombing cases who confirmed investigating three bombing cases where two persons were subsequently charged and produced in court.
Investigators are trying to determine if the report lodged by Malani is linked to the same allegations and reports lodged in 1987 since the matter was already investigated and dealt with in court.
Tudravu says investigations will not be swayed by speculation or comments against the investigation processes. He adds they are mindful of their actions as it will ultimately impact the outcome of legal proceedings if any.
