Organisers are very disappointed that four supporters of the proposed political party of former Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka used the TC Yasa Appeal Concert at Ratu Sukuna Park to collect signatures.

Concert organiser and Fiji Performing Rights Association Director Laisa Vulakoro says it was a charity event and they had no political agenda.

She says people at the concert had good intentions.

Vulakoro says it would very disappointing if Rabuka sent those people to use the charity event for political gain.

She says the security would have been asked to remove Rabuka’s supporters collecting signatures there if they found out at the time.

The four people collecting signatures for Rabuka’s proposed political party were questioned and released by Police after a report was lodged against them.

$16,363.55 was collected through the TC Yasa Appeal Concert.

Four people collecting signatures for the proposed political party of former Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka at the TC Yasa Appeal Concert at Ratu Sukuna Park today were taken in for questioning by Police.

Police Spokesperson Savaira Tabua says the people were warned not to collect signatures after a report was lodged against them.

She says they were questioned and released.

Tabua stresses this does not mean that people will be stopped from collecting signatures.

She says the people collecting signatures today at Ratu Sukuna Park were told to leave for the security of others who were part of the charity event.

Rabuka has been collecting signatures for his proposed political party in parts of the country.

He was at the Nadi Market recently.
