Vanuatu police blitz nets fines from ruling class

1:14 pm on 9 February 2010

Police in Vanuatu have fined Cabinet Ministers, MPs and some of the government's political advisors up to 20 US dollars for driving without licences.

Last week, police carried out an operation and found some ministers had no driving licences while others had not renewed theirs.

By law, all drivers must renew their driving licences each year

The week-long operation netted fines of more than 3,000 US dollars.
