Alcohol ban in effect in Madang

Police in Madang are assisting issue liquor ban notices from the provincial administration to liquor outlets in the town.

Madang PPC Ben Neneo says the town has been quiet and peaceful after the festive season and they will continue issuing the liquor ban notices to outlets in other parts of the province.

He also warned that any defaulters will be dealt with.

Police expect liquor license holders to respect the Provincial executive council’s decision, which was made for the common good for the people.

Last month the Provincial Executive Council passed a resolution to place a 5-year alcohol ban in the province.

A decision that has not gone down well with SP Brewery.
