Fiji's Opposition leader Sitiveni Rabuka today lodged a complaint at Totogo Police Station against the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
He said the complaint was in relation to the utterances Bainimarama made against him during the 20th anniversary commemoration of the 2000 mutiny at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks.
“They should investigate the possibility of the statement amounting to inciting unrest, animosity or distrust between groups of people in our society,” he said.
During the event, Bainimarama described Rabuka as a snake and that the Social Democratic Party was better without Rabuka.
