A video has now emerged on Facebook regarding the incident between the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and National Federation Party President Pio Tikoduadua outside parliament on August 9th this year.
Tikoduadua has told Fijivillage that although the video has emerged, he has no update from Police on the actual investigation.
He says NFP has written to the Police asking for an update on his complaint that he was allegedly physically assaulted by the Prime Minister however there has been no communication with him at all.
The video shows Bainimarama walking to Tikoduadua and holding his blazer for at least 2 seconds.
Bainimarama is then seen speaking to him however the audio cannot be heard clearly.
The Prime Minister has not said anything after the emergence of the video.
Police Commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho had earlier told Fijivillage that he will not say anything publicly as Police always deals directly with the complainants and this will be the same for this case.
Qiliho has only said that Police investigations continue.
Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has already said that the government will let due process take it’s course in relation to the allegation by Pio Tikoduadua against the Prime Minister as Tikoduadua has reported the matter to the Police.
Sayed-Khaiyum says no one should become the judge and jury, and let the investigation take it’s course as there are facts which are in dispute.
This is the Coup Fourpointfive video being circulated on Facebook:
