SUVA, Fiji Islands (September 2, 1999 – Fiji Times)---Police have renewed a warning to bootleggers that selling liquor without a license is illegal.

Assistant Commissioner of Police/Operations Jahir Khan said the attack on a bootlegger in Sabeto last week should serve as a warning to everyone selling liquor illegally.

The bootlegger was attacked by customers after they demanded beer for which they were not prepared to pay.

Mr. Khan said police would soon raid houses and places where liquor was sold illegally.

Assistant Home Affairs Minister Ahmed Gaffar said bootleggers contributed to a lot to crime.

Mr. Khan said if liquor was found in the homes of bootleggers it would be seized and police would keep it for public auction.

Police are requesting the public to contact the nearest police station or call Crime Stoppers with any information on bootleggers.
