Prof. Prasad instructs lawyers to reserve all his rights at law against the Commissioner

The legal representatives of National Federation Party, Professor Biman Prasad, AK Lawyers says the firm is concerned by the manner in which the Police Commissioner saw it fit to mislead the public on areas of the law, relevant procedures and on factual matters that were selectively revealed, in what the firm can only assume, was an attempt to portray Professor Prasad as using questionable means to evade prosecution.

AK Lawyers says it will not comment on any evidence that was selectively revealed to the public as there is a matter currently pending in court and therefore subjudice.

In a statement, the law firm says Professor Prasad has also instructed AK Lawyers to reserve all his rights at law against the Commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho.

AK Lawyers also says it is deeply concerned in the manner in which the Commissioner opted to publicise the decision of the DPP regarding Professor Prasad, where amongst other things, he stated that the process adopted by the relevant office was “unprecedented”.

The firm is of the opinion that the only matter that was “unprecedented” was the Commissioner’s decision to hold a media conference to undermine and question the constitutional prosecutorial authority of Fiji.

It says this is particularly so when his own department had sought advice and an opinion of the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

We have sought comments from Commissioner Qiliho.
