Vanuatu breaking news | 4pm, 26 July 2012


It seems the ministers who boarded the Phocea before it was cleared were Marcellino Pipite and Alfred Carlot. With them was MP Joshua Kalsakau, our informant alleges.

The woman arrested on the ship and who was obstructing the government officials was fined VT 100,000, presumably for that particular offence. A source claims this be the Dinh sister Ti Tham Goiset.

The owner of the ship, Dr (we are now informed) Anh Quan Saken, is actually a businessman owning (presumably leasing) farms on Efate and Santo, Radio News informs us this midday. He exports agricultural products from around the region.
