Police are now compiling all statements and documents in relation to a complaint of alleged repeated sexual harassment of a 22-year-old woman by the CEO of a company earlier this year.

Some staff members have also given their statements.

Police will then liaise with the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for further guidance in the case.  

Police have also confirmed that the 22-year-old woman who had earlier alleged that she was sexually harassed by the senior business executive, has come forward with more information.

The woman had earlier told Police that she wanted to withdraw the complaint.

She had filed the complaint in September this year.

The report was lodged at Totogo Police Station but the investigation was taken over by the Criminal Investigations Department.

Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro had confirmed over the weekend that the woman has not been forthcoming with the Police investigators and on one occasion, had asked to withdraw the case.

She also says that claims that the case was taken up by the CID after allegations surfaced on social media are false as the CID was already involved in the investigation.
