Fiji police pinged for more drug theft ... this time marijuana

Scene of the crime: Nabua police station. pic FBC News
They haven't even solved the case of the missing drugs from Toorak and now they have Nabua on their hands.

Fiji police are back under the spotlight with two officers being taken in for questioning over the large quantity of marijuana that have gone missing from Nabua Police Station.

As in the cocaine taken from the Criminal Investigations Bureau in Toorak several weeks ago, the marijuana was being held at Nabua as exhibits for court cases.

No other information has emerged from police officially today but Coupfourpointfive sources say the stolen marijuana was part of the haul taken in raids from Kadavu and have a street value of more than one million dollars.

A police mole says serious questions are now being raised about the capability of the leadership of the police commissioner, Ioane Naivalurua, and his senior officers, all of whom have been singled out as being involved in a drug ring themselves.


"These drugs went missing with the help of DCP (Isikeli) Ligairi, who is emerging as henchman for the Commissioner and who has been putting his own men in strategic locations in the police force," according to an insider.

"These senior police officers together with commissioner are making quick hundred of thousands of dollar."

The marijuana is believed to have been stolen last week but was reported just today by Fiji media, FBC News. 

The insider says Naivalurua is again out of country, just as he was when the cocaine was lifted from Toorak (C4.5 readers will recall that this was an inside job) this time in Singapore with seven senior officers, when the news broke.

As with the corruption of senior officers, police moles continue to insist senior police officials have the backing of those in hierarchy.


According to the insider: "PM is quiet and sick and these bastards are just doing what they please with total powers under POA for Compol. 


"It's not only the police, they are backed by land force commander and Pio Tikoduadua. What we are seeing is the total deterioration of rule of law and its evident from cases like this. 

"The PM's inability to control the Compol is evident and the question we have been asking is: 'Is he still in control or is he been brainwashed and put in a corner?"

This Fiji Police Force & the Fiji Military Force not only the top level also in the lower level are all marijuana users and cocaine users,when democratic government is in place all this police & military should all undergo drug test,and all their papers thoroughly check,and whoever does not meet the requirement should be sack immediately and their number scrap by the proper authority...

I hear different things from different people, in the know and not in the know.
Some say the Pol. Commis. is the type to waver when a decision has to be made, others say he's an honest and upright person while still others suggest that he means well and is caught in the middle.
It's difficult to assess whether he is sincere or not, but one thing is for sure, he has no control over his subordinates and his policing skills are questionable at best..

Officer to be charged for drug theft

17:32 Today

Nabua Police Station

Taken from/By: FBC News
Report by: Apisalome Coka

Police have made head-way in their investigations into the disappearance of marijuana from the Nabua Police Station.

The drugs went missing from a cell in the lock-up at the station and there were speculations that it could be an inside job due to the secure premises.

Divisional Police Commander Southern, SSP Volau Tuapati, confirmed to FBC News that inquiries are well advanced.

He says a Police Constable from the Criminal Investigation Department, will be charged later this evening in connection with the alleged theft.

SSP Tuapati says they still can’t recover the missing Marijuana which has a street value of many thousands of dollars.

Well times are hard. Our policemen are also feeling the pinch in the high cost of living. Their wages are not enough to make ends meet so they too want a slice of what their bosses are receiving from stolen drugs.

Naivalurua has gone to Singapore to meet the buyers of the cocaine missing from Toorak CID exhibit room and deposit money into his account there.

I'm not angry anymore. I am just very very sad.
I think it is most likely that the policeman or woman has stolen this to sell it in order to support his family.
Life is very difficult in Fiji right now; especially if you live in town.

As someone has said above, this regime needs to be stopped now.
And this is what I've always advocated.

I have said before that this is the normal fruit of what has been sown by Bainimarama.

It will not get better but it will only get worse.
Having an election will not make it any better.

There will be more Poverty, more Drug taking, more mothers and and their children bashed, more Sexual Crimes, more murders etc etc

The Church should have seen all this coming.
Christians working for the regime should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves. You know who you are.

The Church has the solution.

And I only wished they would step out now and lead from the front.

-Valataka na Dina.

It's too convenient to charge a fellow Police Officer, but not be able to recover the drugs.
Sounds like he's the fall guy and the thieves have already sold the stash or his arrest is part of a plan to protect those responsible. No doubt he will be paid off and released in a couple of months or not even convicted by the illegal courts..

KAI BAU said...

This is a very good lesson for the SDL and THE FLP supporters and party as well.Once you win the election lets work together and get rid of this racial hates amongst us.Its better to work together and run the goverment together rather than being led by these uneducated crooks from the military.Probably its time for both parties to work together and work on our diffrence and give ways to each other which will result in living in harmony and happiness amongst us.Why are we still trying to divide as we have our common enemy the military which we all have to destroy and as been proven that these institution was the cause of our down fall wheather you are a Indian or Fijian.
We have to make sure that these people have to go to Naboro and spend the rest of their time in there.
I BEG YOU MR QARASE AND MR CHAUDRY PLEASE LEAVE YOUR DIFFRENCE BEHIND AND LETS MOVE IN ONE DIRECTION AS ONE PEOPLE,ONE POWER AND ONE LOVE FOR THE SAKE OF OUR COUNTRY.
REMEMBER THERE IS ONLY ONE ENERMY TO BE DEFEATED AND BE WIPED OUT FROM THIS EARTH BAINIMARAMA AND HIS ARMIES.

Times are indeed tough, even cops out to make a quick buck!! Don't blame them though, but the audacity to do it. Eventually they will be known one way or another and apprehended..but the one at CID seems to have eluded everyone..ei?

I have just returned to Fiji and have been making quiet questions to those I meet. So far all the Fijians say they are not happy and some afraid to talk because of the army, but some say they talk freely around the tanoa with soldiers present. They support SDL. Of the Indians 5 out of 9 said they would not support Bainimarama. It appears that the regime is heading for a big shock. They may not realise it because they will only be given good news from those that depend on their jobs.

The state of the police in Fij at the moment is worrying, even with or without Iowane being corrupt or not. Corruption of this kind shows greed, discontent, and disrespect for the administration they work for.It also shows that the powers that be do not have things under control.

Stop making unsupported accusations against Naivalurua and the police. Bearing false witness is against God's commandments. The known facts are damning enough.

Naivalurua is either incompetent or he is corrupt.

He could very well be both given the current state of the organisation he supposedly "manages".

Either way, the buck stops with him.

Anonymous said...

Anon 10:09 AM, the buck stops with Naivalurua, true enough. But that's a far cry from saying that he went to Singapore to meet the buyers of the missing cocaine and to deposit money in a secret account. For the poster to present such idle speculation as fact is just plain unfair, ungodly and irresponsible.

If it is fact, then the poster should adduce the evidence. Otherwise, the poster should refrain from leveling false accusations.

Anonymous said...

@ Anon 11:54

True.

Then again this is what happens in non Transparent organisations/ institutions/ systems of governance. Speculation and allegations of that nature become rife. It is the norm in those types of corrupted systems.

So we end up back with the premise i started out with. Either Naivalurua is incompetent and/or corrupt.

Which do you think he is ?

Anonymous said...

@ 11.11am

Not which. Illegal polcom is BOTH incompetent and corrupt, the sorry state of 'law enforcement' in Fiji reflects his leadership. Its true that the buck stops with him, the fish stinks from the head. Again, its typical of those who stand on a shaky, illegal premise and he knows that only too well given his background. But he just couldn't help himself, could he? GREED knows no bounds.

There is a season to everything. There is a time to sow and a time to harvest. Iowane and his two deputies, Ligairi and Brown are sowing greed, lies,corrupt activities, etc, It will soon come to an end and they will harvest these evil deeds that they once sowed. Hell is eagerly awaiting them around the corner. That is the problem when wrong people are put in the wrong place at the wrong time. Pio Tikoduadua is slowly reaping those seeds that he once sowed. Time to repent now or never.

Anonymous said...

Anonymous 11:11, you ask whether I think Naivalurua is corrupt or incompetent. Okay, I'll tell you what I think.

Was Naivalurua behind the drug thefts? I might be wrong, but I don't think he was.

Is Naivalurua incompetent? I don't think so. He isn't a police officer by training, so I do think him a bit out of his depth right now. He strikes me as a competent soldier -- but a soldier, not a cop. The drug thefts could have happened on anyone's watch. The key question now is whether his department has the internal control systems in place that will enable the police to track down the perpetrators. That's the test. 

If, instead, the police frame some loyal officers because those officers criticised the leadership, then Fiji's police are beyond redemption. 

Which brings us to the question of whether Naivalurua is corrupt. I know Naivalurua. I do not know him to be personally corrupt, but I'm concerned by the allegations. It sounds as though his wife is inappropriately involved in police matters, and it's a conflict of interest for her to be a vendor to the Department. I consider credible the allegations of money envelopes from the Chinese, and the statement offered in Naivalurua's defence by the police spokeswoman only adds to my concerns.

What concerns me most, however, is Naivalurua's dereliction in enforcing the law against wrong-doers within the regime. Soldiers who beat labour activists and throw rocks through critics' windows should be prosecuted. An official who suborns perjury in order to frame political rivals should be met by the full force of law, even if -- nay, especially if -- he's the attorney general and chief law enforcement officer in the land. Those who commit treason should be arrested, whoever they are. And if, for political reasons, Naivalurua cannot effectuate their arrest, then the honorable thing would be for him to resign in protest.

I object to those who cowardly use this blog to make irresponsible claims they cannot back up, especially when those claims amount to character assassination. But I've no objection to their calling a spade a spade. If Naivalurua is dealing drugs, show us some proof. If you don't have it, then keep the focus on the real issue, which is Naivalurua's dereliction of duty in the face of treason.

Anonymous said...

@ Anon 2:11

The phrase you use "dereliction of duty in the face of treason" implies that Navalurua is not connected with and/or party to that act of treason which took place on 5th December 2006.

That after all was the ultimate act of treason wasn't it ? It is, in my view, also the ultimate act of corruption. Corruption of the lawful Constitutional processes of the land.

Is he therefore, as you suggest, possibly guilty of "dereliction of duty in the face of treason", or will history record that he corruptly participated in and supported that act of treason of 5th December 2006 ?

Different shades of corruption, but corrupt nevertheless.

To my mind this statement of yours gives basis to the assertions of incompetence being levelled at Naivalurua : "He isn't a police officer by training, so I do think him a bit out of his depth right now"

I would think taking on the pay scale of a Police Commissioner and the duties associated with that requires one to be "in his depth" ala "in his element" on that job.

"A bit out of his depth" suggests incompetence. Or are we paying our taxes for him to be "learning and gaining experience on the job" ?

Anonymous said...

Sorry but soldiers @ the time of the 1987 Coup well know and have heard drunken boastful admission from Navalurua how he assisted the 1987 treasonous take-over of the Bavadra Govt. He is one treasonous shit face who is also a dope dealer.

Anonymous said...

Anonymous 4:50, on the issue of competence, fair enough. I concede that Naivalurua probably doesn't have the level of police competency commensurate with the rank of commissioner.

Regarding the December 5, 2006 coup, history hasn't recorded Naivalurua's participation. If such participation is ever revealed, then I'll concede on that point, too. In the meanwhile, dereliction in the face of treason remains a very serious charge.

In fact, now that you've caused me to reflect further on it, that dereliction also calls into question his competence as a soldier, doesn't it?

Naivalurua needs to act positively and decisively if he's to redeem himself. Or at the very least, he should resign in protest. Otherwise, he becomes an accomplice after the fact, which makes him another traitor, even if he didn't participate in the 2006 coup.

So, incompetent and corrupt? Not sure. But incompetent and a traitor? Quite possible.
