A 17-year-old female teenager appeared at a magistrate court last week after she was charged with drinking underage and unlawful possession of hopi.

The dangerous home brew spirit is prohibited by law to be manufactured or consumed.

Police arrested Tupou Pāhulu from Tatakamotonga after they were called to a report of drunken people on March 11.

Pāhulu pleaded not guilty, according to Taimi ‘o Tonga newspaper.

She was granted bail to reappear in court on June 20, the paper said.
