Saki Bomb Operations

Police Receive Narcotics Identification Test Kits

The test kits will allow Police to identify the total amount of methamphetamine (meth) and cocaine seized during a raid last month at the Sanctuary Hotel in Port Moresby.

During the raid on November 16, 2021, the Saki Bomb Operation uncovered a mini meth lab including unlicensed firearms and live ammunitions inside a hotel room. 

Acting Deputy Police Commissioner Special Operations, Donald Yamasombi requested drug testing kits from Homeland Security, so police can identify how much dangerous drugs were discovered to help in swift prosecution.

Pang Released On K10,000 Bail

In handing down the ruling this morning, Friday 26 November 2021, Magistrate Garry Ungo, said the decision was made after consideration of submissions from the prosecutor and the defence lawyer.

Simon Nutley from Fiocco and Nutley Lawyers submitted on Wednesday 24th November that his client needed medical treatment from a psychiatric for bipolar.

Bipolar disorder, formerly called manic depression, is a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings that include emotional highs (mania) and lows (depression).

Man Faces Drug, Weapons Charges

The matter was adjourned from last month for the defendant to get a lawyer to represent him in this matter.

Sean Honey, General Manager of BSA Constructions appeared for six charges laid against him, two counts for possession of pistol, four counts of live ammunitions and possession of Dangerous Drug (Marijuana).

He appeared in court with his lawyer, Greg Sheppard from Young and William Lawyers.

Magistrate, Seth Tanei said the adjournment was for Honey to find a lawyer of his choice on the basis that the state witnesses are ready for trial.

Magistrate Unjo To Rule On Bail Application

Magistrate Garry Unjo said he needed time to go through the submissions before a decision is reached.

The Court is also expected to hear submissions of Pang’s sentencing.

The businessman pleaded guilty to 11 charges last week, three charges for being in possession of firearm without license, two charges for possession of firearm and six charges for possession of live ammunition.

Police said Pang was not charged for being in possession of methamphetamine, though there was overwhelming evidence, which police uncovered a mini meth lab operated by Pang.
