The government has been called on not to interfere with the operations of the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary.
This was one of the views shared by those who spoke at the public forum in Port Moresby today.
Some called on the Police Minister Robert Atiyafa to table a legislation that will protect the rank and file of police officers.
While presenting their petition to police Minister Robert Atiyafa, many called for politicians to respect the independence of the Police Force as a constitutional office.
Making reference to the recent termination of Simon Kauba as ACP Operations and suspension of ACP Crimes, Thomas Eluh, the public urged the government not to attack any more police officers.
The forum also pointed out the work done by police men and women in upholding the law and spoke against the government sacking those who have worked hard to earn their positions.
NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Perou N’Dranou told EMTV news that police have been lenient on the protests allowing them to have an open forum.
He said people were confused because he gave the green light for a protest and that was changed later yesterday when the hierarchy dismissed his earlier decision.
By reaching an agreement, an open forum was peacefully concluded with both police and the public cooperating and ending with a verbal petition presented to the police minister.
