Police Commissioner, Tom Kulunga, has suspended four officers with pay over the warrant of arrest for the Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Treasurer, says the Goilala District Development Forum blog.

The four, Detective Inspector, Joel Simatab, Detective Sergeant, Michael Dukur, Detective Senior Constable, Robert Ewail and First Constable, Thaddeus Yangawi, are members of the National Fraud and Anti-Corruption Division.

Their suspension is in relation to the bench warrant arrest of the PM and the two ministers which allegedly interfered with ongoing investigation into the K71.8 million fraud case against Paraka Lawyers. However, PC Kulunga said the Police hierarchy is acting on the matter without fear or favor.

The Commissioner has also directed Police personnel who are not directly involved in the Paraka case not to interfere and allow Task Force Sweep to investigate the matter.

Meanwhile, a task force has been established to investigate the matter pertaining to the issuance of bench warrants for the PM and his ministers.
