Vohor and Kalsakau released on parole
THERE were mixed feelings yesterday around 10am inside and outside the low risk prison in Port Vila.
Emotions ran high as the two former politicians, Serge Vohor and Steven Kalsakau, walked out free after 18 months’ imprisonment for bribery and corruption charges since 2015.
Other former MPs embraced them as they left while family members embraced them as free men again.
Less than 50 people, including families, friends and supporters, were outside the main gate of the prison to welcome the duo as they were driven out by the Deputy Leader of Opposition and Vice President of the Union of Moderate Parties (UMP), former Attorney General, Ishmael Kalsakau, and escorted by Saby Natonga, a strong supporter of all moderates in the country.
