PNG Police Union sets off alarm bells over pay cut

The Police Union is demanding an explanation why police officers had their salaries cut.
Thousands of police officers across the country had their fortnightly pays cut, without any valid reason since last Wednesday..
Council of Public Service Union (COPSU) executives including Police Association gathered last Friday, calling on the authorities to provide an explanation on the matter.
Without any proper notifications from the Department of Personal management nor, the Police Department Human Resource Division at the Head Qurater, the police personal right around the country saw a sudden deductions of 30 to 100 kina in their pay packets.
Snr Vice President of Police Union Leuth Nidung said salary is their right full money which should not be touch.
"The concern has been raised, it has been raised through the union bodies throughout our provincial centres through us, and it is our responsibility now to find out. We have been talking to the Police HR, they are also in doubt they dont know what is really happening because they also facing the same situation with the last pay. So something is happening at the moment".
Meantime, the Council of Union is calling on the government and politicians NOT to interfere with disciplinary forces in the country.
It warned that failure to this call, can result in them pulling out of their services.
The Union said they are tired of being pushed around and will not tolerate this anymore.
Deputy Chairman of COPSU, Peter Togs said, all Unions in the country are now teaming up to stop this ill practice that's affecting some of the country's vital institutions.
Attempt to get comments from the Police Commissioner Gary Baki and Department of Personnel Management to comment on the matter were unsuccessful.
