Police investigate after woman rents cars and sells them

Tongan Police were investigating after a Tongan woman who arrived from Australia rented cars from a rental enterprise and sold them to  locals.

It was not immediately clear whether or not the woman has left the country.

Tonga Broadcasting Commission reports said the woman “vanished with the money”.

The details of what had happened were not immediately available.

When contacted Police communication centre did not deny the claims but said they would pass the enquiries to the Acting Nukuʻalofa Police Superintendent Tevita Vailea for a formal response.

That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
