Nine top Fiji police at centre of corruption probe

5:24 pm on 18 October 2012

Nine police officers under investigation in Fiji for alleged corruption have been formally interdicted, meaning they can't interfere with investigations or speak to any witnesses.

A Police Spokesperson, Ana Naisoro, has told FBC News that a special task force investigating the officers has been told to speed up its work.

The high ranking policemen were suspended three weeks ago after allegations of corruption surfaced.

No details of the alleged offences have been released.

The implicated officers are on reduced pay.
