Police Commissioner, Fuiavailiili Egon Keil, has been detained in a Police cell.

It happened when he arrived at work this morning, after charges against him in relation to the wrongful arrest of a member of the public last year were dismissed last week.

A police officer who is not authorized to speak to the media confirmed Fuiava’s arrest.

He could not provide the details but said they are awaiting a Registrar from the Court to clear him so he could be released.

It was not possible to obtain an official comment from the Police.

More details soon.
