SUVA, Fiji (Radio Fiji News, Mar. 8) - Reports from Fiji nationals working for Public Warehousing private security firm in Kuwait say a former soldier who was abducted and freed two weeks ago by militiamen was on an unauthorized trip to buy alcohol.

The man's colleagues say he made the lone trip across the border into Iraq on an unauthorized route in a rented vehicle.

Global Risks Strategy local agent Colonel Sakiusa Raivoce is not aware of the reports but adds it will explain why the man was abducted because he was traveling unescorted on a route not cleared by coalition forces.

Kelepi Abariga the acting human resources manager for Meridian Services Agency responsible for recruiting men for Public Warehousing says only their boss Timoci Lolohea can comment on the report.

"Right now we cannot reveal any detail to you and we’ll have to wait until Lolohea gets in touch from Kuwait," says Abariga.

Radio Fiji reports that Lolohea will bring the man back when he returns on the March 16.
