Basil questions importation of 280 semi-automatic guns

The Pangu Party Leader made these comments following media reports of confiscation of military grade weapons by PNG Customs because of no declaration.  

Government Chief Secretary Isaac Lupari, who also heads the National Security Advisory Council, said the guns belong to the Police. 

“Lupari's statement doesn't add up, something is wrong here,” Basil stated.

“The non-declaration act alone by the private company breaches the Customs Act, whether a government agency or a private sector, those breaches are serious in nature.
