POLICE Commissioner Mathew Varley is calling on communities to support police in their investigations.

He made the comment following questions asked during the press conference yesterday on the progress of murder cases which occurred before the Christmas period last year.

Mr Varley said if communities want cases to be quickly dealt with people in the communities who have information about incidents occurred in their communities must come forward to the police and tell the information.

He said police cannot just arrest people without any evidence and people cannot just say that police are not doing enough when there was arrest.

He said alleged murder cases in particular the Auki death incident and the Avuavu incident are being currently investigated by police.

They are sensitive cases and police are doing thorough investigation into those cases, Varley adds.
