Juffa condemns police actions

Oro Governor Garry Juffa has condemned the actions of police for evicting a family in Port Moresby illegally from their home.

Juffa told Loop PNG that such illegal evictions are becoming too frequent which indicated serious problems with corruption in the Housing Ministry.

“I condemn the actions of those involved and call upon the Police to immediately investigate what is essentially fraud and theft.

“I also call upon Prime Minister Peter O’Neill to immediately investigate the Housing Ministry and protect many innocent Papua New Guineans who are becoming victims to the actions of corrupt public servants in these Departments.

“The Policemen used should be all disciplined,” says Juffa.

The family, from Gulf province have been forcefully evicted out from their home at Gerehu stage 3B by police on Friday afternoon. 

According to the owner of the house, Magrath Hereha, the police did not show any evidence as to why they were evicting them.

Hereha claimed that she tried to enquire about the police actions but was threatened by them (police).

She said the policemen acted irresponsibly without any proper documents provided advising that they should be evicted when the matter was already in court.
