Two police disciplined after 6 escape from Tari cells

Hela police commander Mark Yangen tells PNG Loop that the men broke through a rusted lock and made a run for it when they realised that the station was not being manned.

At the time of the break out there were two other men also in the cell who refused to escape as they feared what would happen to them if they were recaptured.

PPC Yangen says that the six men that escaped have been held for various serious crimes including wilful murder and armed robbery.
