3:55 pm on 18 June 2018

The Prime Minister of Vanuatu, Charlot Salwai who is also responsible for Telecommunications has confirmed that preparations are underway for Vanuatu to have its own Cyber Crime Law.

The Prime Minister told the parliament last Friday that the law is very important as it will be able to address the social media issues affecting Vanuatu today.

Mr Salwai made the statement following questions raised by former Prime Minister Sato Kilman who questioned the government's capacity in controlling social media.

This came after a Facebook post claiming that Mr Kilman had six different back accounts in different banks in Hong Kong.
