SI government repatriates its Unitech students

The Solomon Islands High Commission education attaché in PNG, Claire Damutalau, said 30 students were flown out today.

"For safety purposes we sent them home, it's the call of the National Government," Damutalau told Loop PNG this afternoon.  

"The students moved out off campus on Sunday afternoon and were accommodated at a guest house in (Lae) town until this morning.

"They were really scared and traumatised because it was the first time for them to see men running around with knives," Damutalau said.


​Unitech parties had agreed to reconcile until surprise attack

Students have been directed by the administration to vacate the campus due to the incident during the weekend where buildings were burnt down and a student killed.


According to Lae metropolitan superintendent Anthony Wagambie Jnr, the police have met with the relatives of the deceased, who came down from Mendi. They have assured them of thorough investigations into the brutal killing of the first year student.
