PNG Police Minister slams International Media Organisations

Papua New Guinea Police Minister  Robert Atiyafa has slammed foreign media organisations for sensationalizing the  student unrest in Port Moresby. He particularly  slammed reports from ABC as "irresponsible coverage".  He condemned the  irresponsible coverage of the ABC from Australia who have been telling the world that students have been killed.

“The ABC prides itself of being the only international news organisation with
a permanent presence in Papua New Guinea and today they have disgraced themselves.

“Other international news organisations rely on the ABC for factual information. But we see the headline on the ABC claiming four students have been killed and seven injured is a total nonsense.

“The ABC should get out and report the facts, not just repeat what they read on Facebook.

“This false information was reported on global news organisation.”

“There are even reports that an international airline turned their flight around as a consequence of ABC’s reporting.

“I tell the ABC to get your facts right and stop creating misinformation about our country,” Minister Atiyafa said.
