Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry.

Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry is calling on Acting Commissioner of Police, Rusiate Tudravu to come clean on the investigations concerning the alleged involvement of Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum in a bombing incident in 1987 which resulted in the death of a woman.

Chaudhry says if the investigations were being thoroughly conducted in the first place, why then was the file returned by the DPP for further investigations.

He says a period of 5 months is more than long enough for a conclusion to have been reached.

Acting Police Commissioner Tudravu has already given an assurance that investigations will be conducted thoroughly in relation to the complaint against Sayed-Khaiyum.

Tudravu is asking members of the public to be mindful of the fact that this is a report of an allegation that dates back more than 3 decades so it will take time for investigators to conduct their work.

Chaudhry has again called for Sayed-Khaiyum to step down pending the outcome of the investigations.

He adds one would also expect a statement from the Prime Minister's Office on a criminal investigation involving his senior minister.

We have sent questions to Police Spokesperson, Ana Naisoro and Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
