Members of Fiji’s Police Force have been told they must support the New Methodist Church Crusade,led by the brother of Police Commissioner, Esala Teleni.
The directive was aired on radio on Wednesday, before the start of a four-day Crusade at Suva’s Sukuna Park yesterday.
Teleni says all officers must support the Crusade, saying it is the new technique to combating crime.
Police Public Relations spokesperson, Ema Mua, told a local radio station they are aware officers are disgruntled but said officers who do not support the new edict can resign.
Using language similar to that of her boss Teleni, Mua said the resignations would not be a loss because many others want to join the Force.
But Mua fails to say how new recruits will replace experienced officers who've served the Force for more than 20 years.
