Share the News

A rehabilitated patient, Rex Timu of Laloki Psychiatric Centre outside of Port Moresby was among other patients who have undergone training on how to cultivate food crops.

Speaking to EMTV, Rex said this training by Agriculture experts has helped him a lot in subsistence farming.

Rex hails from Tari in the Hela Province. He was alleged to have killed and mutilated a infant in Tabubil, Western Province in 2014.

He served his jail sentence of 2 years and 9 months at Bomana Prison outside of Port Moresby.

In 2015, he was released by the Bomana National Court, after Justice Panuel Mogish dismissed the case on legal grounds saying the murder was not premeditated or intentional as he had a mental disorder.

He told EMTV news that after the dismissal of his case, he was transferred to Laloki Psychiatric Hospital where he has been undergoing treatment.

A recovered Rex said this training has helped him to engage in sustainable agriculture when he is discharged and returns home.
