Transparency International Papua New Guinea (TIPNG) says its work will continue despite a break-and-entry incident that occurred at their Boroko premises on early Monday morning.
Personnel were assaulted and close to K20,000 worth of goods stolen from the newly moved-in property.
“We are a local Non-governmental Organisation fighting an important battle against destructive
corruption and dependent on financial support from concerned citizens and donor agencies” said
Chairman of TIPNG Lawrence Stephens.
“While we cannot say for certain that the theft was as a result of our work against the corrupt, we will obviously continue to fulfil our mission of speaking up for Papua New Guineans, even though we are now challenged by the loss of our project equipment.”
The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) of the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC) have been notified.
The organisation is appealing to the public for any information that will help in investigations.
