Fourteen arrests were made last night for breach of the nationwide curfew hours.
One case, in particular, involved a 52-year-old heavy goods truck driver who was arrested in Korovou after 11 pm as he was allegedly found driving under the influence of alcohol.
Upon checking the suspect’s documents issued by employers as proof to indicate that he was supposed to be moving around between the hours of 10 pm to 5 am, officers discovered the suspect to be drunk.
He was arrested and is currently in custody.
This was the lone case recorded in the Eastern Division.
The Southern Division recorded 11 cases, whereas the North and Southern Division recorded one case each.
Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho says officers
will be coming down hard on those using authorized documents issued by their employees to move around other than for its intended purpose.
