Vehicles belonging to supporters of FijiFirst have been vandalized.
Supporters who carry the FijiFirst banner or logo on their vehicle have been targets of stone-throwing culprits.
FBC NEWS spoke to one of the victims who wished to remain anonymous.
“I took a passenger to Vuci Nausori and after dropping the passenger – when I was returning to Suva – a group of i-taukei boys approached my vehicle and damaged the back screen – because I have the FijiFirst party logo there. I did not stop the vehicle because I was alone and it was night time.”
FijiFirst General Secretary Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says people should not be intimidated and report such matters to the authorities.
“A couple of people have told us that they were threatened, couple of cars had stones thrown at – obviously this is the kind of thuggery that the other political parties and their supporters engage in.”
Assistant Police Commissioner Operations, Rusiate Tudravu says it can’t take any action because there hasn’t been any complaint lodged.
“Yeah, there should be an official complaint lodged at our various Police Stations or written to us through any correspondence in regards to such incidents that have happened or in the presence of any police officer – any breach of the law that is done he can defiantly take actions.”
The Party also alleges, it’s members have been physically intimidated and threatened.
