Stanley Poga was sentenced today after he was found guilty.
Poga from Mikin village in Chimbu’s Chuave district, was convicted by the Waigani National Court, for what he did to Chief Supt Mathew Damaru on the morning of April 30, 2015.
On that day, he stormed into Damaru's office without an appointment, after he became upset with Damaru for opposing his application for a legal officer's position.
Poga then picked up a paper tray and hit Damaru on the forehead causing a deep cut.
He was arrested and charged on May 6, 2015.
Justice George Manuhu in sentencing Poga today, found that as senior constable then, Poga showed no respect for a senior officer.
