Police Assault: Homes Destroyed, Residents Beaten

The Hohola Guest House and Juha College have also become victims of police raids since Monday, following the incident at Nine Mile when a police officer was slashed.

Properties at the guest house were destroyed and people were beaten up by police.
Substantial amounts of money are believed to have been taken by police during the three-day raids.
After the incident at Nine Mile on Sunday night, truckloads of police arrived at the Hohola Guest House, which also houses the Juha College, and destroyed properties, took cash and bashed up employees.
The same happened on Tuesday, when again, three truckloads of police personnel attacked employees and properties.
While the matter has been reported to Hohola Police Station, company director Tehe Pua expressed concern at the loss of business, time and money.
An ex-police inspector, Neil Yapa deplored the manner in which the attack was carried out.
He said Hohola is under the command of Hohola Police Station and police officers from other commands conducting a raid on the guest house are uncalled for.
He has called on the commissioner to discipline the officers involved.
In the meantime, assurance was given today in the newspapers by both Police Commissioner Geoffery Vaki and Deputy Jim Andrews. They ensured they would deal with officers who acting beyond their normal duties.
