The Fiji Police Force hopes that all Fijians will keep in mind the Honourable Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama's words, in that we cannot afford a mad rush back to the carefree ways of living and doing business we once knew—at least not yet.
We should be focused on our adherence to rules that remain in place, not exploiting those that are being relaxed.
Please continue to comply with COVID-safe measures for the sake of your family and loved ones.
