Police have made another attempt to evict the Hereha Family residing at Gerehu suburb in Port Moresby.
However, intervention by Gerehu Police Station Commander Inspector, Robert Kurei has seen the policemen withdrawing from the area.
The same policemen alleged to be involved in the past two attempts of eviction showed up with an ex-parte court document for the family to evacuate the property.
“We called the Gerehu Station Commander and he ordered the policemen not to leave the property,” said Margaret Hereha.
The Herehas have occupied the property since 1975 and applied for a land title after reaching 35 years of tenancy. They alleged NHC officers have sold the property without their consent.
On the 11th of August Housing Minister John Kaupa made a bold statement not and a directive to stop all evictions on NHC properties.
However, it was on the same day when the Hereha family were evicted from their home and locked outside the property as their home was demolished by a third party claiming to be the new landlord.
The Hereha family called on Police Commissioner Gari Baki and Housing Minister John Kaupa to explain why these officers are colluding to remove the occupants on the property.
