Turi warns residents not to support activists

NCD Metropolitan Police Commander Ben Turi is warning Port Moresby residents to refrain from supporting the unauthorised activists protest today.

Turi says that his personnel will be out in full force to ensure activists do not go against the decision to disallow the meet.

He says the normal seven day clearance was never given to his command or that of his supervisor NCD Central Commander Sylvester Kalaut.

The safety of business houses as well as the public cannot be guaranteed by the organising groups.

Today the capital city was quiet with no major incidence, the only public gathering was the on-going coalition of union’s forum at the Jack Pidik Park.

Turi further stated that there is a process and protocol to follow which the groups failed to comply with to get approval for this proposed march.
