Major General Ben Groenewald says earlier comments by the Police that the case the was closed referred to advice from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions concerning possible charges against the person responsible for uploading the video.

He told Fiji Village that no final decision has been made, and the file will be forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecutions once complete.
