Share the News
Amnesty International has condemned a video on police brutality in Port Moresby.

The film, showed a man sitting on the ground, surrounded by police officers, holding three dogs, as they lunge and attack him.

The video has not been verified, but it raises serious concerns about torture, and other ill treatment by police.

 

Amnesty International is calling on authorities to carry out an independent investigation into the alleged brutality.

 

The video appears to have been filmed by a member of the police unit with the dogs.

 

And while the amateur footage, later shows the victimised buai vendor making a getaway, his safety cannot be confirmed.

 

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Andy Bawa, is aware of the video, and is looking into the matter.

 

Amnesty International have always been quick to come to the checking of human rights abuses, in developing countries like PNG.

 

Police brutality, has, historically been at the forefront of Amnesty International viewpoints and reports.
