The Fiji Police is thanking  members of the public for adhering to the “Restriction of Movement Order” that was in place at 6pm yesterday.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho said:

“The officers on the ground witnessed a positive response and clear adherence from members of the public within the hours restricted and we wish to thank the general public for that.”

Qiliho said that there were no reports received from any station, indicating that people have taken the warnings seriously which is indeed encouraging to note.

“We did bring in 7 people at the Sigatoka Police Station as they were found to be loitering without valid reasons and they have been released after they were warned by the Officer in Charge of Sigatoka Police District.”

Qiliho reiterated on the flood warnings still in place for some parts of the country and asked everyone  to be once vigilant.

“Parents, guardians and members of the public have a responsibility in ensuring the safety of their children and we ask that they are monitored at all times, restricting their entries into flooded drains or rivers.

We continue to receive reports of our young ones or youths frequenting these swimming spots and for their own safety and health risks, we ask that they refrain from doing so. Flooded rivers, creeks or places are not safe to cross due to the risks of sewerage spillover.

Such concerns and advices will continue to come from our end all for the safety and security of all Fijians and we hope that people will continue to adhere to warnings in place as was done last night.”
