Hohola police station

New look for Hohola police station

The K500,000 refurbishment was made possible thanks to the funding support of the Mineral Resources Development Corporation and landowners who own the soon-to-be completed Star Mountain Plaza in Port Moresby.

The Hohola police station sits ideally at the corner in the city’s oldest suburb; it has been around since 1974, what you see today is one of the first refurbishments since that time.

The transformation has brought about positive vibes for the police officers that work here.

K398,000 for police brutality at Hohola

The Waigani National Court today ordered a total of K398,168 in damages and interest to be paid to Ekip Pade, Bras Dos, Boni Kerowa, James Walua, Pora Mek and Michael Nema.

The men were subjected to police assault at Morata 2 settlement and the Hohola Police Station over four days after they were picked up in the early hours of 27 December 2011 following a raid at Morata.

The raid was conducted by police to pick up suspects implicated in the death of a fellow member of the force who had been killed while on duty several days earlier.
