Fiji police probe ‘plot’ to destabilize government


SUVA, Fiji: Fiji’s police chief said Tuesday his officers were investigating allegations of a plot to destabilize the government, refusing to deny it may have emanated from the force’s own ranks. Acting police commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho said the alleged plot was discovered when an Internet cafe owner found incriminating emails left open on one of his computers. Qiliho did not provide details of the alleged conspiracy, simply saying investigations were continuing. “But I want to assure the safety of the people,” he told reporters. Fiji has endured four coups since 1987, the most recent of which was carried out by the military in 2006 under the command of current Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
