ENB resolves to evict illegal settlers

This follows the December 6th incident between Vudal students and armed thugs, where two of the suspects were killed when attempting to rob the students.  

Deputy Governor and Bitapaka LLG President, Cosmas Bauk, announced that this was the recommendation made to the ENB Provincial Law and Order Committee and this was the decision reached at the recent committee’s meeting.

Local killed, polling deferred

On Tuesday, June 27, a 40-year-old man from Marmar village died from wounds sustained during an election-related clash.

Provincial police commander (PPC), Joseph Tabali, told Loop PNG that the fight started on June 22, a day before the campaign period was to end.

“After campaigning, the deceased, Beringson Paul, and his team convoyed back to Marmar village, sometime between 8 and 9pm,” says Tabali.

“There they started preparing rations for the final day of campaigning, June 23.”
