Police Commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho and Coordinator of Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre, Shamima Ali

Police Commissioner, Sitiveni Qiliho says he has not received any report from the Coordinator of Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre, Shamima Ali that some police officers who carry out the investigations, blame the domestic violence victims that they have caused their own deaths.

Ali has said that victim blaming is a major issue faced as relatives and people who attend the funerals and even some Police officers who carry out the investigations sometimes blame the victims for causing their own deaths.

Ali says that she has always received complaints from the victims that they have been told by police officers to reconcile with their partner after getting beaten up by their partners and husbands.

Qiliho says that he has always been in contact with Ali and she has never raised this issue with him.

We are still trying to get Ali on this issue.
