Illegal selling

Luke Rawalai
Friday, April 11, 2014

THE sale of petroleum and tobacco without proper licences in village canteens is illegal.

Speaking at the Lekutu District meeting on Tavea Island in Bua yesterday, acting district officer Bua Apisai Vularika said this was the case with most village canteens in the province.

He said in such cases, canteen owners did not possess proper licences to sell fuel.

Mr Vularika said they were working with village headmen in the province monitoring the situation to ensure the illegal sale of fuel was stopped.

"At the moment, we are doing awareness programs in villages through the district and other communal meetings."

Mr Vularika also reminded district representatives about the need for canteens to renew their licences.
