Solomons new police commissioner says his appointment was all in order
Khan says he has the support of the police force in the Solomon Islands.
"The Governor of the Solomon Islands, Sir Nathaniel Waena would have not sworn me in if I didn’t get the support of the police force there."
Khan was responding to reports from Honiara that there were claims of a possible constitutional breach in the process.
Khan was sworn in by the Governor General in Honiara last Tuesday.
Just minutes ahead of the ceremony, the Police and Prisons Service Commission alerted the Governor General that they had not approved the Prime Minister' selection of Khan as commissioner.
However, the Governor General said the fact that the Prime Minister's Office consulted one commissioner was enough to satisfy the constitutional requirement.
Khan said the media had blown the incident out of proportion. He will be leaving Fiji on June 10 to take up his new appointment.
