Vanuatu MP facing arrest over failure to appear in court

An arrest warrant has been issue for the Vanuatu member of parliament Kalo Seule after he failed to appear in court.

The Port Vila MP was due to appear for sentencing yesterday, after he was earlier convicted on tax charges.

The Daily Post reported that as manager of Parts Plus South Pacific, he had refused to pay the tax since December 2010.

His non-appearance means Seule risks having his bail revoked.
