Waigani market

Waigani market closed

The Market management have decided to close the market upon recommendation from the NCD health authority. The market is expected to be closed for six months, while undergoing maintenance to the toilets. 

Spokesperson representing the market vendors, Pastor Emanuel Luke, understands the role of the market management but stated that many livelihoods will be affected given the short notice of the market closure.  

Waigani police commander pushing for charges

PSC Yosman tells PNG Loop that the ten soldiers who went to the station and bashed his three unarmed men behaved badly for men in  uniform.

He says that it is also bad form as they should have allowed police to gather and sort out the compensation payments that they were trying to get.

The soldiers were supposed to have picked up the payments as part of an outside settlement of an incident involving a policeman bashing one of their comrades last week during a crowd control clash.
