Province, hotels talk security

Jone Kalouniviti

RA provincial administrator Kelepi Kubunameca and police will visit tourism properties in the province to discuss security issues.

This is in response to an incident at a Rakiraki resort last week where a Canadian couple was robbed at knife point and the woman raped.

Mr Kubunameca said the incident questioned the safety of guests at the hotels and had been unsettling for the tourism business.

"Our hotels are located within a small area and news travels fast, we needed to instil confidence with our visiting communities and that is our plan in the coming days," he said.

"We will let the law take its course but for us we need to ensure this does not happen again."
