Drug offenders

Harsh penalties for drug offenders in NIP

This was Governor Sir Julius Chan’s message during Tuesday’s New Year briefing.

He said: “Full focus and attention will be devoted to areas growing marijuana and drug related behaviour, like Matalai LLG areas.

“Those caught will be charged and forcibly evicted and sent home.

“They will be further blacklisted and disqualified from all the Government Subsidy Policy benefits.
