A magistrate at the Boroko District Court made these comments in relation to a matter that came before her on Wednesday this week.
Magistrate Laura Kuvi said police cannot enter people’s premises without a search warrants or unless they are on court pursuit.
“It’s different when they are chasing somebody and that person runs into your yard, its immediate pursuit and they can enter your premises. But It’s different when they are coming to conduct a search. They need to obtain a search warrant,” she said.
