Minister of Police Hon. Mac Mokoroa

Police Minister asks the Public for help

We are pleased said Police Minister Mac Mokoroa at the work done by the Cook Islands Police to tackle a number of suspicious fires that have taken place in Rarotonga over the past six months . Commissioner of Police Maara Tetava also said he is  pleased with the outcome of the team’s investigations and that their detectives have been working hard and very long hours on this investigation and others.

An arrest has been made of a young man in Rarotonga and this arrest is the culmination of extensive investigations by the Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) and brings some sense of security with regard to any further threats to the safety of the community. Despite this arrest Police Minister Mokoroa said, there is still much work to be done and we commend the Police and the community for their efforts. Together we can bring this to an end and bring to justice those responsible for these terrible fires. We urge anyone with information he said to come forward.
