Regime suppresses Bogileka drink incident

The Administrator for Nasinu Town Council and former minister in Mahendra Chaudhry's 1999 government Meli Bogileka spent two nights in a police cell at Valelevu Police Station more than a week ago after being arrested for drink driving.

Sources have confirmed in the early hours of Saturday 22nd August, Bogileka was stopped by police less than a kilometre from the Nasinu Town Council office where he indulged in binge drinking throughout Friday night.

He was locked at Valelevu police station for two nights - 22nd August and 23rd August. He apparently appeared in the Valelevu Magistrates Court on Monday 24th August charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

However the news of Bogileka's arrest, detention and court appeaance has not been reported. Sources present at the Valelevu Court say the news media was present and the only conclusion is that the regime's censors did not allow the news story to be broadcast and published.

It will be interesting to see whether the regime's new Local Government Minister Colonel Samuela Saumatua will take action against Bogileka especially since the Council premises was used for a party.
