Mendi quiet

Mendi is quite and businesses are operating normal after the visit of Prime Minister Peter O’Neil on Wednesday this week.

The Acting Provincial Police Commander Chief Inspector Gideon Kauke said that the Bank of South Pacific (BSP), shops, schools, PMVs and people are operating normal as the curfew is on from 6am-6pm each day.

 “The number of security personnel in Mendi was boosted this week with the arrival of two police mobile squads totaling about 70 men and a contingent of Papua New Guinea Defence Force personnel.

“They are working around the clock to collect the names of criminals who were involved in burning down of Link PNG DHC-8 plane and the buildings.

“The names of the perpetrators will be given to the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) team when they come to Mendi this weekend,” Mr Kauke said.
