A petition has been launched by about 100 Tongan police officers seeking the minister’s decision over the process of police officials’ promotion, which they termed ‘discriminatory, unfair and dishonest’.
The petitioners asked the Police Minister, Hon. Siosifa Tu'utafaiva, to revoke all promotions and remove some of the top officials from their current posts.
Hon. Tu’utafaiva says he received the petition last week.
He said it was not new for the ministry to receive petition of this kind as it had some in the past.
“It happened when ‘Akau’ola was the minister of police. It happened when Clive Edwards was minister and it happened when Chris Kelly from New Zealand was Tonga’s police commissioner,” Tu’utafaiva said in Tongan.
“I am happy they came to me with what they wanted and we had a long meeting last Friday. I will meet with them again this afternoon at 2pm to look at what I have for them in response to their petition,” the minister added.
