Watch out for minors

POLICE officers will monitor nightclubs in Vanua Levu during the school holidays to ensure minors are not entertained.

Deputy north police commander acting SSP Fulori Rainibogi said they would demand ID cards from suspected minors.

The police are also urging parents to look after their children and supervise them well.

"Parents should keep a close watch of their children who are underage as most of them are easily tempted by their friends to hang out in the clubs," she said. "Anything can happen in nightclubs. Children can easily be lured to drink alcohol or smoke and when they get drunk, criminal activities such as sexual offences could occur."

She said students found in clubs would be told to go home and if they failed to adhere to the law, they would be punished.

Acting SSP Rainibogi also warned those selling liquor to students.

"The school holiday is not a time to party, instead it's supposed to be a period of planning your school work for the next year."
