The RFNS Kiro may be left on the Cakauyawa reef where it ran aground close to four months ago.
Numerous attempts to rescue the navy patrol boat have been unsuccessful with the vessel sinking further into the reef.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says he’s recommending that any salvage of the RFNS Kiro be abandoned.
“Ive told the Commander of the RFMF MIlitary and also the Commander of the Navy to again, have a look at it cause we maybe wasting alot of resources and time trying to get it floated again because the way its sitting now, I think its beyond that.”
Defense Minister – Ratu Inoke Kubuabola says he’s been given a brief on the RFNS Kiro and has requested more information.
