Lae Liquor ban to be lifted if Tutumang agrees

Lae City should see an end to the year-long liquor ban.

The provincial government expects to lift the ban following concerns that the prohibition of liquor has proven to be counterproductive.

Even with the ban, people have been substituting legal alcohol with homebrew and in some cases ethanol mixed with soft drinks.  

The crime rate in Lae appears to have risen in recent weeks due to the availability of illegal alcohol and marijuana.

Morobe governor, Kelly Naru said the ban could be lifted in two weeks if the Tutumang agrees.
