WARNING AGAINST ILLEGAL HUNTING AMMUNITION IN NIUE

admin's picture

ALOFI, Niue (December 24, 1997 - PACNEWS)---The Niue police have warned that anyone caught illegally importing shotgun ammunition will face the full force of the law.

The warning was issued after a 60 year old man was convicted of illegally importing ammunition and of attempting to bribe a customs officer to overlook the crime.

Niue permits a two month hunting season for pigeons and flying foxes, in December and January. There is a restriction on the amount of hunting ammunition that can be legally purchased, however, and this has led to some people attempting to smuggle in ammunition illegally.
