People continue to drink alcohol in public places, despite warnings from the Fiji Police Force.

In Nadi, the notorious spots, Martintar and Wailoaloa Beach, groups continue their drinking thereafter the nightclubs are close.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro reiterated that those who broke the law would be held accountable and their teams would monitor these spots.

Yesterday morning, outside a nightclub, a man was seen sitting in a crouched position and sleeping.

Not far off, a group of people were seen having a good time with a carton of alcohol and sitting on the footpath.

Nadi Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Dr Ram Raju said: “Early morning walkers and joggers don’t feel safe and comfortable.

“The wide and attractive footpaths meant for walking and running (as well as cycling) is defeated by the drunkards who are often seen urinating, vomiting, uncontrollable, dangerous and even threatening apart from sleeping anywhere they can.”
