Judge executes hard lesson for cops


Justice George Manuhu said this when sentencing a cop of eight years to 40 years in jail with hard labor today.

Justice George Manuhu said the root cause of undisciplined behaviour in the Police Force should be identified and addressed at the Waigani National Court today.

He said the Police Commissioner and Minister responsible should take all necessary steps to address this, which ultimately develops into unnecessary assaults, destructions and killings.

Until then, there is a worrying trend that the number of policemen in jails is on the rise.
