Four police officers have been suspended from the line of duty following an assault on a youth from the village of Vaimoso.
According to several sources from the Ministry of Police, the policemen were suspended after the mother of the boy lodged a complaint against them.
“She lodged a complaint about the way the policemen treated her son last month,” said the source.
“They beat him up. All were charged for assault and were suspended pending their court case.”
On Tuesday last week, the four policemen appeared before the District Court.
