The law has finally caught up with water thieves.
The Water Authority Of Fiji CEO Opetaia Ravai says they’re in the process of taking two people to court for stealing water from their main supply pipes.
Ravai says they have a full list of water thieves and are in the process of prosecuting those whose files have been referred to the DPP’s Office.
“The last two months spent on making sure the case is solid..this is the first two cases we’ll be taking to court”.
The Authority has its own investigators and lawyers who are tasked to hunt down water thieves.
And Ravai says their list has both domestic and commercial clients.
“There’ll be more to come we have a list of people who have been found to be using water illegally and that includes commercial customers as well”.
If found guilty, water thieves can be fined up to one million dollars or imprisoned.
