Growing suspicion that foreigners may be trying to interfere in Vanuatu politics has triggered a police investigation on two Asian individuals.
The subjects of the recent police investigation are two females of Asian origin who arrived in the country earlier this month.
Daily Post was reliably informed that their details categorise each as a “housewife” but their activities raised suspicions, triggering the police investigation.
Two days after they arrived in the country, they were under police radar as investigators were interested to see if they would be any form of money transactions.
They were said to have meet with some politicians and some business owners of Asian origin in town.
However, when questioned they both denied meeting with a Member of Parliament.
In less than two weeks they checked into two different hotels in town, before leaving the country after being questioned by police.
One of the suspects informed police that the reason for her visit was to collect a suitcase of clothes she had left in Vanuatu during a previous visit.
The government’s stand when it comes to foreigners meddling in issues of national interest is clear.
In the aftermath of the recent extraditions, Minister of Internal Affairs, Andrew Napuat, said: “Leave politics aside”.
Daily Post understands this is not the first report linking politicians allegedly involved in dodgy financial deals with foreigners.
