Relief supplies looted in Mendi: Police

A warehouse holding the bulk of earthquake relief supplies has been ransacked in Mendi.

Deputy Commissioner of police operations, Jim Andrews, revealed that during Thursday’s rioting, a warehouse holding relief supplies for earthquake affected communities in the area was looted by opportunists.

Andrews expressed disappointment at the actions of the looters, adding this act was uncalled for as it affected the less fortunate victims of the recent devastating disaster.
