Officer in court for allowing suspect to escape

A police officer is in court for allegedly allowing a murder suspect to escape from custody at the Boroko Police station in Port Moresby.
It was alleged that the accused Tony Leo from Western Highlands was on duty on the 10th of March 2016 when other police officers brought in to custody a male murder suspect who killed his own wife on that same day.

The suspect escaped during the 7pm-3am shift and it is understood that Mr Leo was on duty on that shift when the incident happened.

Currently, the police officer is out on bail and the Waigani Committal Court has adjourned his case to the 6th of October when he failed to turn up for court yesterday. PNGFM / PNG Today
