Tatana man given 2 years in prison

43 year old Joel Solien was sentenced to two years behind bars or until he repays the full amount stolen.

Between July 1 and 31 2013, Solien was employed as a driver with East West Transport limited, a company contracted to transport fuel to the InterOil fuel service station.

It was between that time (he admitted in court yesterday Nov 4) that he sold fuel worth K24,640 to a Pakistan man in Port Moresby for K7,000.

He had worked with East-West Transport for seven month before committing the offence.
