3 arrested over River Side water supply damage



AUKI police recently arrested three males for damaging a water supply at the River Side village in Small Malaita.

Malaita PPC Timothy Apaesi told this paper that the incident happened last week and is under police investigation.

He said the initial motive for the alleged unlawful action is believed to be land dispute.

Apaesi said upon receiving information on the damage, Auki police attended to the incident and seized the men.

He said the men were charged and released on bail and are expected to appear in court soon.

Apaesi advises public in Malaita to refrain from taking the law into their own hands and to allow police to enforce the law, because they are the ones mandated by law to do so.
