Twelve (12) of the twenty three (23) arrests made include a group that were found drinking homebrew and alcohol in Navua.

“All those arrested will be produced in court today,” Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho said.

“We are clamping down on breaches of social gatherings and all information received will be investigated.

“Members of the public have also been sending in photos and videos of people breaching the restrictions for which we are grateful for, as we need to work together to fight this virus.”
