Institute of National Affairs executive director, Paul Barker made this comment, referring to January 1 incident in Port Moresby where the New Year morning nearly turned into a gun fight between RPNGC and PNGDF personnel.   

“It may involve only, small number of people but it will not send out a good message to the community and investors as well,” Barker said.

He added that with the country’s current economy condition, foreign investors are what the country needs to claim the rough seas.
