New Ireland implements laws


NEW Ireland is implementing some of its provincial government laws and has instructed police to enforce them through awareness and cautioning those who break them.
Provincial police commander Supt Gideon Ikumu said the government was enforcing laws on banning the sale, chewing and spitting of betel nuts in public places, littering and loitering in town area.
“Since the shops, markets, hospital and the banks are open, we encourage the people to go straight to where they want to go, get what they want and return home,” he said.
“The coronavirus does not have legs and hands but it is us humans who walk around and spread it.
“If people are able to control their movement and follow simple laws and instructions put in place, we should contain and control the spread of the deadly disease.”
Supt Ikumu said police were working closely with the provincial health authority and provincial emergency response team headed by provincial administrator Kamiller Pawut.
