SUVA, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- The Fiji Police Force is concerned with the number of attacks against Public Service Vehicle (PSV) drivers reported over the last few days in the island nation.

Fiji's Commissioner of Police Sitiveni Qiliho said in a statement on Tuesday that attacks against PSV drivers will not be tolerated, and anyone involved should face the consequences of their actions.

A 29-year-old man had been arrested in relation to an alleged assault case against a bus driver in Nadi, Fiji's third largest city, while a similar attack in Toga last week saw a 37-year-old face court trial.

Qiliho said PSV drivers provide an important service to the public, calling on the public to settle grievances through appropriate channels.

The police commissioner said reports of attacks on PSV drivers will be dealt with quickly to ensure those responsible are processed and charged in court.
