Pressure from Government forces Solomon Islands police chief to quit
In the past few days Prime Minister Derek Sikua sent a letter to the Commissioner, directing him to resign or face a tribunal under the Police Act.
The cabinet had earlier outlined a list or concerns over Mr Khan’s performance in the role but was disatisfied with his response to them.
It’s understood that the cabinet disagrees with Mr Khan’s push for re-armament of local police.
There is also concern with what is seen as Mr Khan’s political meddling as well as a decline in the general performance of the force.
Mr Khan says the government has now accepted his proposal to leave when his current contract finishes in June.
