Incest claims need to be reported: Police

PPC Tabali says for some reason, reports of incest rarely reach his office, even though they are aware of incidents occurring within the community.

“That’s a concern to me and I appeal to the people, especially the victims of those particular offences like incest, need to come forward and report these to the authorities,” he stated.

“So that we will stop these perpetrators from further committing this offence. It is animalistic.”

Frustrations reach boiling point, students clash with villagers

ENB provincial police commander, Joseph Tabali, said the crux of the issue was similar to that of Gelegele; constant harassment and attack of students and staff by locals in surrounding villages.

“Those nearby villagers have been attacking students and robbing them when they catch bus from Kokopo to the campus,” PPC Tabali told Loop PNG.

He further pointed out a number of cases that had eventually led to the clash on Sunday, May 27th.

ENB Christmas operations underway

ENB Provincial Police Commander, Joseph Tabali, is appealing to the people of East New Britain to make it their business to keep their celebrations indoors.

He said for residents to be mindful of the recent breakout at the Kerevat prison and that police are still on high alert in recapturing them.

“Especially for women and young girls, they should not be seen walking around alone but be accompanied by a male figure.”

He adds that due to the recent breakout of escapees, it is still quite unsafe for residents to be roaming about this festive season.
