Samoan RAMSI Officer Involved in Fatal Accident Refuses Interview

The Samoan RAMSI officer in Brisbane involved in a fatal accident that claimed the life of a young female nurse graduate refused to be interviewed by Police.

The investigation into the fatal accident that occurred on Friday 13 June 2008 involving off-duty RAMSI officers from Samoa is expected to be completed in the coming days.

The Detective that traveled to Brisbane to interview the Samoan returned to Honiara yesterday.

Police Media Office says that when they attended the hospital in Brisbane, the Samoan refused to cooperate and declined to be interviewed by the Detective from the Solomon Islands Police Force.

Acting Commissioner of Police, Peter Marshall, says he's disappointed the Samoan did not cooperate with Police but still expects the investigation to be finished this week.

Police Media office says a brief of evidence will be delivered to the Director of Public Prosecutions for his consideration later this week.
