THE improper and illegal use of compressors are still an issue for divers living in the Yasawas.
Divisional police commander West Salacieli Naivilawasa called on district leaders in the Yasawa Islands to work with police in finding those still using the machines.
"Some of you may have heard just recently that there was another death in the Yasawas because of the use of compressor," he said. "Compressors are considered illegal in this country because of the very reason that they cause the death or paralysis of our young men."
While addressing members of the Ba Provincial Council, DPC Naivilawasa said monitoring the use of the machines was difficult.
