Acting Lae Metropolitan Superintendent, Commander Fred Kaiwa, confirmed this with TVWAN News today. This also goes in line with earlier reports of eyewitness accounts from the Lae Yacht Club.
Earlier this week, the Club clarified that the video was misleading; the Electoral Commissioner was attempting to calm down the situation.
Kaiwa confirmed that after gathering reports during the weekend, they established that the fight had been started by the tall man in the video and not instigated by the commissioner.
This incident had occurred on Friday, October 6.
