SI government repatriates its Unitech students

​The Solomon Islands Government repatriated its students attending the University of Technology to Honiara today.

The Solomon Islands High Commission education attaché in PNG, Claire Damutalau, said 30 students were flown out today.

"For safety purposes we sent them home, it's the call of the National Government," Damutalau told Loop PNG this afternoon.  

"The students moved out off campus on Sunday afternoon and were accommodated at a guest house in (Lae) town until this morning.

"They were really scared and traumatised because it was the first time for them to see men running around with knives," Damutalau said.
