Madang residents fed up with crime

​A petition to end criminal holdups and the sealing of the Beon Panim Road in Madang Town was presented to Madang’s Police boss and Provincial Administrator Daniel Aloi this afternoon.

The protesters included landowners of Sisiak and residents of Brahim, Panim, Beon Mausrot, the corrections facility, Furan and Sisiak Village.

Banners and placards held by the frustrated group publicly carried their demands of a safer community and better road conditions.

School students and teachers joined in the march to Jomba Police Station as well.

Attempts to contact PPC Jacob Singura failed, but reliable sources say the petition also informs PPC Singura of a sit-in protest scheduled for this Friday.

A feedback from the authorities is expected early next week.
