The Fiji Police Force is yet to release an update on investigations relating to the alleged sexual abuse of 14 young boys by a clergy of the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma.

Queries on the investigation sent to Police spokesperson Savaira Tabua on March 8 remained unanswered.

However, she said that they would respond after this newspaper sent in another request for an update.

On February 25, according to police, the alleged incidents happened from 2018 to this year when the clergyman was serving on an outer island in the Southern Division.

Police said the victims were all juveniles.
