Central Province leads the way in bench warrant execution

This has been attributed to community involvement, says criminal judge Justice Panuel Mogish.

“There is too much talk and not enough action. Central Province is leading the way in executing bench warrants.”

He said while the country’s focus was on its problems and at Waigani over the past four weeks, there are positive developments in Central province, especially with the courts. 

Community involvement has made the province lead the way in the execution of bench warrants, compared to other provinces, including the National Capital District.

Law enforcement authorities must be law abiding

He called on all personnel in the law and justice sector to abide by the law and respect it to be respected in return.

“I want to remind you all police personnel, soldiers and wardens that the uniform you wear, it is not yours. It belongs to the 7 million people of Papua New Guinea,” he told officers in a parade before the start of a court user’s forum.

“Everyone contributes to that uniform you wear, it is public property. A lot of times, we hear news of policemen doing the wrong things, we don’t need that.
