Vanuatu Police warns residents of use of laser devices

The Vanuatu Police Force warns that it will deal with anyone caught aiming laser devices at an aircraft taking off or approaching the airport for landing.

“Police can arrest you if you aim a laser or a bright torch at an aircraft, causing an incident. You will be taken to court and could end up in jail,” VPF said.

“We are appealing to the chiefs and leaders of residential areas near the airport such as Blandinere, Prima, Abattoir, End of Airport and Mele to seriously warn their people to stop the dangerous practice of pointing laser devices at aircrafts.”
