SUVA, Fiji Islands (September 28, 1998 - PACNEWS/Amy)---Fiji's Police Commissioner Isikia Savua has warned that the department will now "come down hard" on landowners who erect illegal roadblocks.

Savua said landowners have taken advantage of the light-handed approach by police in the past, and stressed that all illegal roadblocks now will be forcefully removed and those responsible charged.

Commissioner Savua said he has informed police officers to be particularly alert for any roadblocks erected on public access roads leased by the government.
