Trukai Fun Run 2018

Parkop responds to St John attack

He understands that the number of police personals requested for the Fun Run was inadequate due to availability and suggested private security firms to be involved in the future.

The Governor further suggested for organizers in such big events to do more awareness in the community so they can understand better the purpose of the event so they respect it.



More attacks during Pom Fun Run

A senior photographer with the National Newspaper was also attacked and robbed off his personal items including his camera.

His son who posted on social media about the attack said his sister was also dragged 10 meters on the ground by these thugs in an effort to remove her “bilum” bag from her.

He also condemned the actions of these youths.

NCD Governor Powes Parkop said he will raise the issue with Trukai and the PNG Olympic Committee.
