Police have charged five male students following a brawl at the Nuku’alofa bus station on Wednesday.

A Police spokesperson said today the accused included three students from Tonga College and two from Liahona High School.

They have been charged with disorderly behaviour and causing disturbance in a public area.

They have been released on bail yesterday from Police custody and were expected to appear in court next week.

Photos taken at the scene and uploaded to Facebook this week met with disapproval.

Most commenters criticised the brawl and said this was nothing but too much “nonsense” and “show off”.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
