Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 10/09/2018

More than 20 cartons of tobacco were destroyed last Saturday at the Tapuhia landfill.

The tobaccos destroyed were in three brands including Long Beach, Marlboro Reds and Marlboro Gold, with each 50 packets inside one carton.

Health inspector from the Public Health – Nirimba Talakai says, these tobaccos were destroyed due to a report received from the Leiola Duty Free who owns them.

Talakai says these boxes were shipped in on a plane from overseas which Leiola forgot to pick up from the airport on the night but it was raining so therefore that had to be destroyed because badly damaged.
