​‘NCD Alert’ FB page misleading: Turi

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Ben Turi says the number of posts about the stolen motor vehicles do not match the reports that are filed every day at the police stations.

“Such pages are good but can also be misleading and give a bad name to the force,” states Turi.

“We have vehicle problems but we are still managing to push through the bad publicity on social media.”

Turi adds that his men are already struggling with the limited resource available.

FB defamatory remarks case dismissed

This case involves a 26-year-old woman who allegedly posted defamatory remarks on social media, Facebook page ‘Jimi Politics Open forum’, against the sitting member.

Margret Opo of Karap village, Jimi district, Jiwaka Province, first appeared in court on November 1, 2016, where her charge was read and explained to her.

Three months on, police prosecution received no instructions from the investigating officers on the progress of the case, which prompted them to move an application to strike the matter out, which was allowed by the court.
