Police spokesman Patemosi Wate reported that there was excessive consumption of alcohol by youths in the two provinces.

“It has reached an alarming state in almost every village,” he said.

“The Fiji Police Force is hopeful that elders will be able to counsel their youths and the number of drinking cases will decrease. We also need to talk to our youths.”

“Cases of assault causing inju­ries has also been increasing.

“An issue that has been talked about frequently is the Domes­tic Violence Restraining Order (DVRO).”
