COMMISSIONER of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho has reassured the nation that the police are prepared for any security situation that might arise after November 14.

During an interview yesterday, he said they were working closely with the Republic of Fiji Military Forces commander Rear Admiral Viliame Naupoto to monitor the situation on the ground during and after the election.

Brig-Gen Qiliho also reassured the people of Levuka that there would be no civil unrest. His comments came after questions were put to him on alleged rumours of a coup and civil unrest. RFMF soldiers, Brig-Gen Qiliho said, had also prepared themselves for the safety and security of all Fijians.

“Those are rumours people don’t need to take seriously.

“If you look back at Fiji’s history, these rumours do come around and we don’t see any ounce of truth in that with our intelligence network and close co-operation with the military.

“There is no such thing.

“We assure people of Fiji to go out and cast their votes on the 14 of November and enjoy the 15, there will be nothing happening,” he said.
