Driver licences

Licences should not be removed at roadblocks: Turi

The NCD Metropolitan police commander Ben Turi clarified this when speaking about the issue of drivers who have had their licences taken away when checked at roadblocks around the city.

Turi tells Loop PNG that as per directives from the higher police command, policemen are only supposed to be carrying out vehicle and spot checks for suspicious and wanted persons.

He explains that this is part of a city-wide operation set in place as part of the lead-up exercises in anticipation of the FIFA Under 20 Women’s World Cup.
