Petition Follows after a Murder in Buka

By Meriba Tulo – EMTV News, Port Moresby

Chief Secretary to the Autonomous Bougainville Government, Joseph Nobetau, has expressed disappointment over the recent murder of a man in Buka.

Justin Tsibing, from Buin in South Bougainville, was found dead in the early hours of Saturday morning. This prompted a large group of people from Buin in South Bougainville to convoy up to Buka, demanding an apology, and compensation.

EMTV News has since learnt that a petition has been presented to the ABG President, Chief John Momis, by people from South Bougainville, following the murder.

This petition calls for several issues to be addressed, including;

  • The Immediate and public condemnation of the murder by the ABG;
  • A demand that the police take immediate action and that the suspects be arrested and charged; 
  • Ensuring that the suspects are brought to justice quickly, and that the full weight of the law is applied;
  • Committing the ABG to assist with the cost of funeral arrangements and related expenses; and
  • Publicly address this issue when the ABG Parliament next meets

The situation in Buka remains tense, with local authorities monitoring developments closely.
