The Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Fiji Zhang Ping says it is important to look at the issue of the arrest of the 77 Chinese nationals objectively.
The 77 Chinese nationals were sent back to China from Fiji suspected to be involved in more than 50 telecom and online fraud cases targeting Chinese citizens in China amounting to about $US900,000.
Responding to questions by Fijivillage, Ping says that we should not politicize this issue and look at working towards enhancing our co-operation.
A month long operation saw Fijian law enforcement agencies deal with the alleged breaches in visa conditions in accordance with relevant laws and regulations of Fiji.
Following a thorough investigation conducted by the three law enforcement agencies, Fiji Police and the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China confirm that no Fijian was a victim of the group’s alleged illegal activities.
Meanwhile the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China has also handed over office equipment, radio communication equipment, a traffic command vehicle, fiberglass and rubber boats for rescue operations that will further enhance Police Operations in Fiji.
The total worth of assistance provided is valued at $670,000.
Ambassador Zhang Ping says this assistance would enhance the capability of the Fiji Police Force in carrying out it’s duty more effectively that would deliver better services to local communities.Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
