Kramer to pursue shooting case

The Member for Madang, Bryan Kramer, vows to pursue the case involving a shooting that took the life of a 16-year-old boy late last month.

The Member said he is aware of the incident and will have a discussion with the provincial police commander for Madang to investigate and if found that Police were involved in the shooting as alleged, than these men will be asked to stand down.

The 16-year-old was shot after allegedly being involved in an armed robbery, he and four other men were pursued to a nearby Island, a few kilometres away from the airport, where he was shot dead, while the other men were shot on their ankles and knees.

Kramer said that he intends to discuss this issue with the Police commissioner and even the Minister.

“In the past things like these get swept under the carpet, now as the member of Madang, a different approach will be taken," he said.
