A 22 gauge gun was stolen from the home of a Navua businessman during a robbery on Monday but the police have deliberately kept the information from the public.
The gun, which was legally in the possession of the businessman, is used for wild duck hunting. Some bullets were also taken.
If it were another country, the police would have immediately warned the public of a stolen gun in the hands of dangerous criminals.
But not in this case. Why not?
A report on Fiji Village reads as follows:
"The search continues by police for the four men involved in a break-in at Wainadoi early Monday morning.
Chief Operations Officer ACP Rusiate Tudravu said some people who were alleged to be involved have been interviewed and released.
ACP Tudravu added that police will continue to set up snap checkpoints in a number of areas.
The four men broke into a businessman’s home and got away with jewellery and cash.
ACP Tudravu said some other items were stolen and investigators are looking into this before making further comments.
It is also confirmed that the four fled from the house in a car which was found abandoned at Reservoir Road."
