NCDC Betelnut Control Law 2013

Buai ban case to go for hearing

This follows Justice Allan David’s ruling on the disputed facts which will be deliberated on by the full court.

The betelnut control law of 2013 was created under the NCDC Act to regulate the selling of betelnut in the nation’s capital, in its bid to change the attitude of city residents.

However, a law that was meant for NCDC has gone beyond the borders of NCDC, affecting the people of Central Province, in particular, the Mekeo-Kuni LLG people of Kairuku, who are large-scale growers of betelnut.
