Director International Affairs Superintendent of Police Ulaiasi Ravula said the request to send Dr Kalougivaki was not only an outcome of the continuing Police co-operation between the Melanesian Spearhead Group of countries but also bilateral partners Australia.

It is also consistent with provisions for sharing or resources and expertise through the wider Pacific Islands Chief of Police (PICP) network. The Fiji Commissioner of Police is keen to further strengthen this cooperation and exchanges with our partners in the Pacific region.

“The inter-Pacific relationships and assistance being supplied between countries continues to be strengthened and Fiji is grateful to Australia’s support in enabling us to send Dr Kalougivaki to assist our MSG brothers in whatever form,” SP Ravula said.

Dr Kalougivaki has experience in forensic pathology and has also worked and trained under forensic experts from Australia on Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) and Medico-legal Death Investigation.
