Minister for Defence, National Security and Foreign Affairs Inia Seruiratu says Police now has its own Forensic Pathology Unit which makes solving forensic cases much easier.
He says Police were able to solve more than 800 cases last year through forensic technology.
In response to Assistant Minister for Agriculture Jale Sigarara’s question on Forensic investigation capability in the country and the region, Seruiratu says they now have finger print technology which is very critical as opposed to the dusting process they had before.
He says that they are providing drug and DNA assistance to Vanuatu.
Seruiratu says they are assisting Samoa, Tonga and Tuvalu in Crime Scene Investigation.
