By Patricia Keamo – EMTV News, Port Moresby The National Capital District’s (NCD) Metropolitan Superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, is now urging the public not to take part in any illegal demonstration and respect parliamentary processes to be exercised without undue influence and interference ahead of the Parliament sitting, scheduled for tomorrow, May 28. He told the media that NCD police have not received any request from individuals or groups for a public walk, procession or gathering in regards to this week’s parliament sitting. Concerns were raised after a protest march had been planned in the lead up to the Parliament sitting, and the police are taking extra precautions toward public safety. As parliament is set to resume session tomorrow, the public has been warned against supporting political faction or taking part in demonstrations to parliament house. Mr N’Dranou also added that police officers will deal with anyone attempting to disturb peace during Tuesday’s parliament sitting. “Any public gathering within the city or intended walk with our leaders to the parliament will not be allowed,” said Mr N’Dranou. “If the leaders want to walk, let them, we don’t need supporters to follow.” Parliament will be on lock-down, with a heavy police presence of over 1000 officers to be maintained to ensure peace and good order. City residents are advised to keep clear of parliament when it is in session. “We are urging residents to take other routes from the parliament area as police barricades will be set up.” https://youtu.be/25SVU2PDlms]]>
