Highlands Highway to be reopened

 

Families of the two slain police officers killed during the elections have agreed to remove roadblocks and to pursue their grievances through proper channels. 

Appeals surrounding PM’s warrant joined

The two seperate appeals were joined after parties in the case agreed, that they had similar grounds, as both appeals arise from the same National Court decision, which dismissed the review case, challenging the legality of the arrest warrant that was taken out against the Prime Minister in June 2014.

Commissioner asked to investigate officers

Three SHP regional seat candidates are claiming that police are involved in numerous corrupt deals by not providing fair and transparent police service in the province.

The allegations were laid against police from Nipa Kutubu and Mendi by Jerry Kewa, Joe Kobol and Ps Bernard Peter.

The candidates revealed they have evidence of law enforcers breaching their conduct of protecting the police force by accepting bribery, and they are ready to pursue the matter in court after declaration.

Baki confident about 2017 elections

 

Police Commissioner, Gari Baki says the 2017 elections have been very quiet but says he is pleased with the progress of the police elections operations so far.

He said unlike running the operations in previous elections in the country, 2017 is a complete change.

“I do not know if it is a change for the better, but for me it shows that there is maturity in the mindset of Papua New Guineans and that’s the way we should be,” says Baki.

Buimo breakout very unfortunate, says Baki

This was the comment from Commissioner for Police, Gari Baki in a media conference this morning at the Police headquarters.

Baki states that in his view of what had happened, there is always reaction to what has happened in the jails.

He adds that it’s time we give considerations to the structure that is supporting our jails.

There may be other contributing factors however, Baki said he did not want to talk about how the Correctional Service has managed its affairs.

Funds issue stalls Police election deployment

Police Commissioner Gari Baki said there was delay due to slow release of funds in the past few weeks.

“K8 million of the K121 million needed to run the operations have been released from Treasury.”

Baki said the other K21 million is expected to be released most likely today or tomorrow.

He added that the outstanding K21 million is still very much needed to carry out the full cost of deployment.

“The K8 million has been used to set up the provincial operating posts already.”
