Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho has given a strict warning that they will not hesitate to take action against anyone found breaking the law during the Fiji Trades Union Congress organized march on Saturday.
The march has been organized by the FTUC from 10am on Saturday in Nadi in support of the Air Terminal Services workers on strike.
Qiliho says if anything goes wrong or there’s a breach of law, the Police Force will hold FTUC General Secretary Felix Anthony accountable as he applied for the permit of the march.
“We don’t expect any breach of law but we have to plan for any worse case scenario and I have resources that I can deploy to deal with the issues that might arise but the responsibility rests with Mr. Felix Anthony so if anything goes wrong with that then we will hold him accountable.”
Speaking to FBC News Anthony says everything is in order so far as the law is concerned and looks forward to the March this weekend.
“Hopefully we can get the government to understand that this is a serious issue and as government it has a responsibility to act on this matter as soon as possible and attempt to resolve the impasse.”
Anthony adds the march is specifically to support the workers of ATS that are on strike to protest against the actions of the management.
The march will begin at 10am through Nadi town down to the Denarau Road to the Hotel Union office.
