TWO senior police officers accused of attempting to overthrow the former commissioner of police Esala Teleni were discharged yesterday by the High Court in Suva.
Rusiate Tuidravu and Berenado Daveta, who held the job of director National Intelligence Bureau, had all court proceedings cancelled against them. A jubilant Mr Tuidravu was all smiles outside the court room saying, "truth will always prevail".
The charges against the two were laid after emails spreading information against Mr Teleni was supposedly sent from addresses belonging to the two.
Both had denied the email addresses belonged to them. Mr Tuidravu and Mr Daveta were suspended from the force in January even when charges were not laid. The two were then taken into custody and the Magistrates Court informed that bail should be denied for the two because the duo's actions had resulted in the national security risk being upgraded.
The two handled the top intelligence jobs as successor and predecessor also told the court, they never had any such meetings and were not close to each other. On September 14, former Director for Public Prosecutions, Aca Rayawa filed a nolle prosequi in the High Court registry.
