Sex in the graveyard

While day-to-day life carries on around them, sex workers in Nausori Town are using a nearby cemetery for something rather jarring.

Komai Nausori Ratu Lepani Tagicakibau told The Fiji Times yesterday the cemetery was the unofficial red light area where sex workers tout for business and “sometimes end up doing their business there”.

There are days when these illicit activities take place in broad daylight.

Nausori has been over-run with drug peddlers, users, “working girls” and glue-sniffers conducting their business in plain sight.

The issues highlighted by this newspaper this week resulted in a meeting between police, frustrated businessmen and residents.

Police have assured the people of Nausori their streets will soon be safe again with the imminent installation of CCTV cameras and increased foot patrols.
