This was confirmed by Acting commander of the Kavieng Correctional Institution, Inspector Lamasisi Marengi.
He said in New Ireland they have a good jail. It’s not like other institutions where prisoners constantly break out.
Inspector Marengi, who is a local from the Tigak LLG, has spent 40 years in the correctional service field.
He said he’s been to other prison camps like Buimo and Bomana that have experienced a number of escapes but when he arrived in New Ireland, nothing of that sort has happened.
