    A video showing a man smoking an unidentified substance has been sent to Kaniva News and a number of other people.

    We have asked the person who sent the video and the message, who we cannot name here for legal reasons, to explain to us what had happened, but we have received no response.

    The video was sent through a Facebook group created by the sender some time ago.

    Last night the message popped up again after another receiver clicked ‘like’ on the message.

    The video shows a man smoking from a glass pipe containing a white substance and blowing out clouds of smoke.

    At one stage he can be seen reacting with a negative facial expression apparently because of the effect of the substance.

    The message arrived in our Facebook messenger labelled “smoking meths”.

    We cannot confirm that the substance the man seen smoking in the video was methamphetamine

    The message in Tongan which accompanied the video said: “Oku feunga nai ki ha taha ngaue fakapule’anga kene fai to’onga koeni lolotonga oku fakamamafa’i he’e pule’anga hono ta’ofi.”

    This translate into English as: “Is it appropriate for a civil servant to do this type of behaviour while the government is stressing its prohibition.”

    While the man is smoking somebody can be heard in the background saying:  “DJ pe ia. Kau taitaimi atu au ia ke ke ha’u. Aaa! Ko ia. ‘Oua ‘e holomui. Tau toki malolo pe ki fa’itoka.

    This translate into English as: “We just use DJ. I will wait for you to come. Aah! That’s it. No surrender. Let’s rest only in our graves.”
