Deputy Opposition Leader and Bulolo MP, Sam Basil, has called on the government to address law and order nationwide, highlighting his concerns over the rise in crime and lawlessness causing disorder in communities.
He made these statements, following the announcement made by Police Commissioner, Geoffrey Vaki, of investigations into the deaths of Singaporean businessman Tan Tiam Teng, 69, managing director of Morobe Stationery and 24 year-old Moanna Pisismi in Lae, Morobe Province.
An investigation team comprised of Port Moresby detectives have been deployed to Lae, to carry out the investigations amidst public concerns over the nature of the homicide cases.
Basil, an outspoken Morobean leader, says the O’Neill government must look into law and order problems in the country which have escalated to alarming proportions.
Morobe Governor, Kelly Naru has also joined in condemning the death of Moanna Pisimi. Naru who has been ill over the recent weeks, visited the family of the slain mother of two at the house of mourning ‘hauskrai’ in Butibum village, on the outskirts of Lae city.
