PNGFM has reported the assault of a male and female staff whilst covering the storming of Parliament last Tuesday.

During the chaos on November 20th over the delay in payment of APEC allowance, Parliament staff were assaulted including members of the media.

Whilst trying to cover the situation, police and correctional service officers caught sight of the two PNGFM reporters.

In a statement, the radio station said the female reporter was manhandled by a group of police officers who pulled at her shirt, attempting to rip it.
