Meanwhile the Commissioner of Correctional Service Solomon Island (CSSI) Mr Gabriel Manelusi has issued a letter of interdiction to a Senior Officer (Chief Superintendent) last Friday.
The decision was made after a full investigation was conducted by Professional Standard Unit (PSU) into his allege involvement of influencing the current interdiction and serving officers of CSSI to incite traitorous act against the leadership of Commissioner Correctional Solomon Islands and CSSI executive.
“This attitude will build a mistrust and disunity within CSSI organisation and also has undermine the integrity and good reputation of CSSI leadership,” Commissioner Manelusi said in a statement.
He added that the incident occurred on the third and fourth quarter of 2019 until to date.
He said such conduct is a totally breach of CSSI Act and Regulation and can be liable for dismissal or termination accordingly.
“I encourage you my good serving officers or interdiction officers to refrain from such behaviour we have an ACT and Regulation, Rules and protocol to safe guard our action,” CCSI Commissioner Mr Manelusi said.
