Fourteen arrests were made last night for breach of the nationwide curfew hours.
Police Commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho says one case in particular involved a 52 year old heavy goods truck driver who was arrested in Korovou after 11pm as he was allegedly found driving under the influence of alcohol.
Qiliho says upon checking the suspect’s documents issued by employers as proof to indicate that he was supposed to be moving around between the hours of 10pm to 5am, officers discovered the suspect to be drunk.
The driver was arrested and is currently in custody.
Qiliho says this was the lone case recorded in the Eastern Division, while the Southern Division recorded 11 cases, whereas the Northern and Southern Divisions recorded one case each.
He says officers will be coming down hard on those using authorised documents issued by their employees to move around other than for its intended purpose.
