The Fiji Police Force has confirmed that they have just received the Fiji Trade Union Congress permit application for the national protests planned for this week.
Police Chief of Operations, ACP Maretino Qiolevu, says the Fiji Police Force can only confirm receiving the permit, it will go through the usual process, once the decision is made, and it will then be relayed back to the applicant.
The Fiji Trade Union Congress National Secretary, Felix Anthony, in a media statement issued yesterday, states that FTUC made an application on Wednesday April 24th, after the Executive Board met to discuss the issue of the national protest for May 3rd.
At the meeting of its Suva affiliates, it was decided that a march also take place on the May 4th.
ACP Qiolevu once again reiterates that once the decision is made after they go through the usual process of vetting the application; the outcome will then be relayed back to the applicant.
