Bishop Rochus Tatamai of Bereina Diocese expressed disappointment over the delay of the police report on the killing of Father Jerry Inau in the mountains of Goilala in Central Province.
Bishop Rochus said police have run out of funds and left the area without producing a report to the local Catholic Diocese.
He called on the police to continue the investigations, has it becomes hard for local leaders to stop spiraling retaliation among the people.
It’s been one month since the killing of Fr Inau at Kamulai village.
Late Fr Inau was shot while trying to address payback killings and lawlessness in rural Goilala.
Goilala MP, Daniel Mona, is calling on the police hierarchy to seek operations funds and not depend on the district funding.
Meanwhile, Bishop Rochus said the church will continue to provide basic education and health services in the area despite tribal fights, payback killings and high consumption of marijuana by the locals.
