This were the sentiments of the Commissioner of Police, Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho at a press conference in Suva yesterday.

Brigadier-General Qiliho said his communicating with the Fijian personal on a daily basis.

QILIHO:”We’ve been in contact via emails every day and I’ve also received yesterday the latest update from the UN headquarters in New York.”

“Your right, things don’t look good but they are well looked after, there’s UN departments that look after that, in particular department of safety and security who will advise us accordingly on the likelihood of actions or cause of actions that we need to take.”

Earlier this month, hundreds of South Sudanese people were killed alongside two UN peacekeepers, both Chinese nationals.
