SUVA, Fiji Islands (July 24, 2001 – Daily Post/Pasifik Nius)---A prominent local politician, a number of local lawyers, and some local media personalities are among "the main actors" in pornographic video tapes seized from the home of the murdered Red Cross director John Scott, claims the Daily Post newspaper.

The tapes were reportedly seized by police in the course of their investigations into the double murder, which claimed the lives of Scott and his partner, Gregory Scrivener, in Suva on July 1.

Citing an unidentified "police source," the Daily Post reported in a front page story today that the video tapes -- viewed by police investigators last week -- clearly identified a well-known politician, two radio personalities, journalists and two prominent Suva lawyers in "sexual encounters" at the late couple's Tamavua residence.

"A police source said the group in the tapes appeared to be intoxicated or under some sort of trance," the paper said.

Assistant Police Commissioner Moses Driver neither confirmed nor denied the identity of those implicated in the tapes. However, he said he would not comment on the issue yet.

Driver told the Daily Post he "did not want to sensationalize the case any further," the paper reported.

"We cannot reveal so many things. It . . .prejudices the family members of the deceased and the accused," Driver said.

A Fijian man, Apete Kaisau, has been charged with the murders and is awaiting trial.
