The Director of Public Prosecutions, Christopher Pryde has decided that no charges will be laid against Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama in relation to a complaint lodged by Sitiveni Rabuka regarding comments the Prime Minister allegedly made at a function at QEB on 2nd November 2020.
Rabuka had claimed Bainimarama’s comments were seditious.
The police file was sent to the DPP for an assessment of the evidence and a decision on whether any charges should be laid following the complaint.
Pryde stated that following a review of the police docket and the evidence, it is their opinion that there is insufficient evidence to support criminal charges against the Prime Minister and, therefore, the docket has been returned to police with the instruction not to charge and no further action is required.
