FAMILY disputes should be resolved through dialogue and not violence,
Assistant police spokesman Sergeant Suliano Tevita said there were avenues available where family disputes, particularly between couples, could be referred to for an amicable solution.
His comments came after a 32-year-old woman was hacked to death in Suva yesterday following a dispute.
Her partner was in police custody last night.
"Couples in particular need to dialogue because we can solve disputes and misunderstandings when we sit down and talk," Sgt Tevita said.
"Besides, there are places where we can turn to for support and counselling when we know we still can't solve our problems - there is the Department of Social Welfare, police, church and the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre," he said.
