Man arrested after wife reported him to Police for alleged brewing of homebrew


RSIPF Officers in Gizo, Western Province have arrested and charged a male adult for allegedly brewing homebrew in the township after the suspect’s own wife reported the matter to the police.

Police confiscated a 20-litre bucket and 70-litre bucket of the illegal homebrew when they arrested the suspect at his home in Gizo on Thursday 10 August 2017.

The suspect was charged under the Liquor Act for the alleged illegal production of homebrew. He has been released on bail to appear in Court on 21 August 2017

“The interesting thing about this case is that the suspect’s own wife reported her husband to the police. We commend her action. It shows that such illegal activities can be curbed if everyone including family members co-operate to report such illegal activities to the police, says Provincial Police Commander, Western Province, Mathias Lenialu.

Police encourages other members of the community to come forward and report such illegal activities so our families can live in peace without the threat of crime.
