Police yet to release charges on PNGDF soldiers

Police are yet to release the charges for the PNGDF officers who had gone in for questioning regarding the New Year’s commotion between the police and PNGDF.

The officers were brought in for questioning at the Boroko Police Station at around midday today.

Amidst the waiting, while questioning was in progress, media personnel were told to move away from the police precinct by a senior member of the Crime Investigative Division (CID) who said that they did not want any media publicity and attention.

A few minutes later the officers were seen moving out of the police station and into a waiting PNGDF vehicle parked outside of the station.

Metropolitan Superintendent Ben Turi says that the charges will be released once everything has been compiled from the questioning.
