Colonel Ezekai Wenzel

Media urged to verify stories

A disappointed Chief of Joint Operations, Colonel Ezekai Wenzel, outlined recent media reports about fighting up in the Western Highlands.

Colonel Wenzel outlined that the number of arrests and even the back story of the reports that were run were all blown of proportion.

He clarified reports of a massive arrest carried out in Laigam village in Tambul Nabilyer, of Western Highlands Province, were all taken out of context.
