Enforcement of new law

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, June 29, 2015) –Street vendors in Samoa will face prosecution when police start enforcing a new law banning people from selling goods in front of shops and around town areas.

A police spokesperson, Su'a Muli'aga Tiumalu, says the Prime Minister has correctly said the new Fugalei market in Apia and other markets are available for small business operations.

Mr Tiumalu says the police have given steet vendors enough time to shift their businesses to the markets, and will start prosecuting people from next month.
