Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 12/06/2019

Number One Noble representative of Vava’u this morning raised his concerns about the Government’s operations in the fight against drugs especially in the borders.

Lord Tu’ilakepa says the drugs are smuggled through the borders and he strongly believes that the people responsible for it are working within that particular ministry.

Police Minister responded that they are addressing the issue despite the challenges and they are ensuring the border control officers are not involved with any such criminal activities especially with drug related crimes.

Government established a Drug Taskforce within the Ministry of Police and since then close to 200 people have been arrested and charged with drug related crimes.
