The police deny involvement, but cannot explain how copies of a DVD that they gathered as evidence from Ballu Khan's home somehow ended up being distributed to Fiji media outlets. Khan's lawyers have a good idea and have identified a certain officer in Fiji Police Special Branch. Welcome to Fiji 2008, where anything goes, courtesy of the country's illegal military-backed regime.
FIJI TV: Police deny involvement in DVD leakage
The Fiji Police Force denies its officers were involved in the
leakage of a DVD seized from Ballu Khan's house into the public
