Hanuabada Killings: More Evidence Needed To Complete Investigation

by Stanley Ove Jnr – EM TV, Port Moresby

The case of the Hanuabada killings in January this year, is similar to other cases involving police shootings and killings.

Acting Assistant Crimes Commissioner, Donald Yamasombi, made clear that investigations will continue and suspects will be identified. 

According to Yamasombi, the lack of cooperation from the Hanuabada Villagers to assist police is a huge problem for the investigation.

While there are over 100 witness statements with police, Yamasombi says they need more statements to narrow down investigations.

Meanwhile Sinaka Rarua, the brother of the late Nicholas Rarua who died from the shootout, urged more eyewitnesses to come forward and give their statements to the police.

Sinaka said this will allow the police to complete their investigations.

The Motu-Koitabu Way Forward also expressed similar views with President, Samuel Lohia, urging the Police not to release premature reports on the investigations.
