Former Buka Police Station Commander, Cletus Tsien, said this when addressing a crusade on Sunday in Buka.
He told the gathering that Bougainville needs to put safety first and not be blinded by other less important stuff.
“As a former police commander I know facts about security here. Guns we have here now are more than the guns we had in the crisis,” Tsien said.
“Our sources in the atolls tell us they have sighted ships, up to three and four sightings per day. What they do we don’t know, illegal fishing? Drug trafficking?”
