Police Patrol University of Papua New Guinea


By Vasinatta Yama – EMTV News, Port Moresby

Shortly after 4am this morning, more than 30 police vehicles arrived at the University of Papua New Guinea’s Waigani Campus, at the request of university’s Academic Senate Standing Committee and the Executive Dean of Schools.

This follows on from the continuing student boycott, with police called in to ensure the safety of those students who still wish to attend classes.

Port Moresby Metropolitan Superintendent, Benjamin Turi, said police were present “to make sure there is normalcy back in students’ classes, going back to class, and stop all the encouragement by any other students stopping others from going to class.”

Our reporters on the scene have been told by some students that they see no reason for police to be present.

More to come.
