A total of 8,600 mangrove seedlings have been paid off and will be planted at selected plantations of NBPOL.

Rights of women must be recognised: Manager

A total of K14,400 was presented to the MLF chairlady Mamel Taina, treasurer Emma Mobeo and coordinator under the Oil Palm Industry Corporation (OPIC) programs Elizabeth Rava, last Friday.

In presenting the cheque, NBPOL sustainability manager Peter Callister acknowledged the work and input from OPIC and the executives in coming up with the proposal. The rights of women must be recognised to earn income and be taught life skills so they can sustain their families.

New computer set for Kimbe Police

The company last May received a request from the Provincial Station Commander (PSC)  if they could assist by equipping the General Duty Counter officers in receiving and recording cases into a computer rather than manually using the Occurrence Book (OB).

The request from the PSC last year stemmed from concerns by the courts who have decreed that they are not going to accept handwritten Occurrence Book (OB) entries and secondly, most of the handwritten entries fade overtime or pages go missing making it difficult for prosecution of cases.
