Koloma was supposed to be interviewed: Police

The NCD Superintendent Operations Commander has confirmed that the national statistician, Roko Koloma, was supposed to be brought in last Friday for an interview.

In a brief yesterday, Commander Michael Tilae said they only have correspondence and documents going into the office.

Tilae was responding to queries raised by this newsroom on the status of allegations and questioning that were supposedly set to be carried out on the national statistician regarding misappropriation of funds amounting to more than K200 million.

He stated that Police from the crime investigation unit were present last Friday to hand in documents for Koloma to come down to the station for questioning.

However, this did not eventuate.

Meantime, during a recent press conference called by Koloma, he revealed that he received the letter however, he claimed that some of the contents or in particular, allegations against him, were untrue.

The Supt Ops however maintains that the case will still be looked into and appropriate actions taken.
