Director NTD, Superintendent William Foufaka says, “This is part of the safe green games operation conducted by the police and other law enforcement in preparation towards the Pacific Games 2023 (PG23) that will be hosted in November.”
Superintendent Foufaka says, “The operation is aimed at tracking down vehicle drivers who are under the influence of alcohol when driving, using unlicensed motor vehicles and driving without license.”
