Wobiro Disappointed Over Arrest Proceedings

Western Province Governor Ati Wobiro has expressed his disappointment over his arrest last week.

Governor Wobiro criticized the police involved in his arrest for not following normal procedures for his arrest.

Mr. Wobiro said there is a set procedure for police to follow when arresting members of parliament.

Western Province governor Ati Wobiro was accompanied by Western Province provincial administrator, Dr. Modowa Gumoi.

Governor Wobiro expressed disappointment in the way he was approached by the police in his arrest last week.

He was concerned because the arresting officers were not from the appropriate unit.

He said the reason for his arrest is a matter that has been tried and thrown out by the court.

Meanwhile the governor said recent court decisions to park non-CMCA funds in trust accounts is affecting development in Western Province.

However, Governor Wobiro says he is determined to fight these in court until the funds are released to the mining department.
