Former anti-corruption chief investigator, Nasir Ali says his appointment
this week in a senior police post will be a fitting reply to his opponents
in the force.
Ali, now a senior superintendent of police, said some senior police officers

“I was left to bite the dust two years ago thanks to some police officers
who didn’t like the way I was handling things, now it’s my turn,” he said.

Ali was suspended over charges of insubordination after he was appointed as
an inspector to investigate the Agriculture scam in 2000.
“Some officers did not like the way I was handling the investigations
because they also had a hand in the scam and were afraid that they would be
exposed,” he said.
“They also tried to bring in the Police Credit Union saga where they tried
to charge me with corruption.”
SSP Ali said that nothing will stop him from holding a senior position in
the police force.
“The appointment will go ahead this week and the directive will come from
the Police Commissioner himself.”
Ali was the chief investigator at the Fiji Independent Commission Against
Corruption (FICAC) before he was moved to Police headquarters last week.
He is earmarked for the position of Assistant Police Commissioner Crime.
