Attorney General Siromi Turaga and former Fiji Corrections Service Commissioner Francis Kean

Attorney General Siromi Turaga says we should not treat the former Fiji Corrections Service Commissioner Francis Kean as a person of interest because he has not been charged and is still a free person.

Turaga rejected claims that he had a meeting with Kean, however, he said that he bumped into him coming out of FNPF.

The AG says there is no restriction for him meeting Kean, and we should not treat him as a person of interest.

He has given the freedom to the Acting Commissioner Salote Panapasa to exercise discretion in terms of the administration of authority.

Turaga says Panapasa is an experienced officer.

The AG adds that the former Commissioner has tendered in his resignation, and they are in the final bit of formalising this and will be advertising the position of Commissioner soon.

Kean resigned from his role early this month.
