Turi warns police involved in Waigani shooting

The commanding officers and unit leaders of policemen involved in the Waigani shooting are being warned to hand over their wanted officers or face possible charges.

The Metropolitan Police Commander Ben Turi says he has personally sent out a minute to the station commanders and unit leaders of the men involved to bring in the officers implicated in the November 26th incident.

It is alleged, the incident led to the death of a man and the alleged abuse and assault of another man and woman who were with the deceased.

Turi says that investigators have already identified two main suspects who have yet to make themselves available for questioning.

He informed PNG Loop that a memo has been sent out this week outlining to the appropriate commanding officers that if they do not deal with their officers, they  would face disciplinary and administrative charges.
