Fiji advertises top police position

12:52 pm on 16 May 2007

The interim administration in Fiji is advertising for a Commissioner of Police and for a Supervisor of Elections.

The police commissioner's job was previously held by Australian, Andrew Hughes, who fled the country in fear for his and his family's lives just prior to the coup in December.

The Fiji Times reports that the acting commissioner, Romanu Tikotikoca, intends to apply for the position.

Meanwhile, there is a threat of legal action by the former Supervisor of Elections, Semesa Karavaki, who says his post should not be advertised because he was not sacked in a legal manner.
