A HIGH profile institution is set to be established in Fiji to train national security and defence personnel specifically on intelligence and assessment.

This was confirmed by the director general of Fiji’s National Security and Defence Council, Timoci Natuva.

Mr Natuva said one of the major challenges the council they faced was the lack of capacity building.

Since Mr Natuva took over role in 2017, he had recruited a total of 30 staff including four directors compared to the time when former commissioner of police Esala Teleni was chair with only three staff.
