Helen Kura

Grace period expires, women sentenced

Helen Kura and Margret Ani were sentenced separately by the Waigani National Court to serve two and three-year jail terms respectively after they failed to repay monies they stole from different organisations within the time allocated by the court.

Kura was convicted and sentenced to two years in jail on November 2015 for stealing K11,700.

From the money stolen, she only repaid K200 to the court. One year, three-and-a-half months later, she still had an outstanding of K11,500.
