The Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC) will be taking legal action against building contractors who are delaying police housing projects.

Police Commissioner, Gary Baki said he was given directives to his officers at the police head quarters to identify which contractors have been paid, but have not completed the housing projects.

The Bumbu Police Barracks Housing Project started in 2012 and was taken up to ease housing problems faced the police.

The Project costs K2.5 million and was supposed to be completed by 2014.

The seven duplexes are almost completed however, construction was put on hold, early this year.

A representative from the construction company said, they purposely delayed completing the project, because they have not been paid.

Mr. Baki dismissed such claims, saying this will be looked into.

“I know a lot of money has been paid to the contractors and they have the obligation to ensure that the barracks is completed,” Baki told EMTV News.
