Fiji police and military cooperate on coup evidence

9:33 am on 24 September 2004

Fiji's police commissioner and the military commander are reported to be working closely to pool all the evidence from the 2000 coup and mutiny to bring those responsible to justice.

Commissioner Andrew Hughes has told Radio Legend that Commodore Frank Bainimarama is playing his part to ensure that whatever evidence is gathered in the military investigations is made available to police.

This is needed by the police to build up strong cases against certain individuals.

Radio Legend says it has been reliably informed that crucial evidence about who was giving the orders during the coup and mutiny has been revealed by rebel soldiers during interrogation.

Commodore Bainimarama says a lot of this information will be revealed in the coup court martial which begins next month.

He says this will further assist police in their investigations.
