Police have confirmed that 2 people are being questioned in relation to a video involving minors that went viral on social media.

Police Spokesperson Ana Naisoro has confirmed that two 17-year-old boys are currently being questioned by Police.

A 17-year-old boy was taken in for questioning yesterday for allegedly sexually assaulting the 14-year-old girl.

Another 17-year-old was brought in late yesterday and is being questioned for alleged trafficking of obscene publication.

Police have also confirmed that an official report has been lodged regarding the alleged sexual assault of the 14‑year‑old girl seen in the video that went viral on social media.

Naisoro says that the report was lodged by the victim's father at the Namaka Police Station.

She says that prior to the official report being lodged, officers had already been gathering information about the uploading of the video as well as the alleged offence of defilement considering the age of the students as any issue involving minors is always a concern.

Naisoro adds that at the same time investigators are looking into the aspect of who uploaded the video to social media.

Fijivillage has contacted Lifeline Fiji and they have confirmed that they are working to provide assistance to the young girl and her family.
