Madang Locals await a response to their petition

Madang locals are waiting for a response to their petition which was presented to the governor regarding the death of four youths who were shot by police during an unrest in Madang last month.

Madang Open MP Bryan Kramer said the petition by locals is at the office of the Madang Governor Peter Yama who has not given an official response.

Kramer said he had spoken to former Attorney General Sir Arnold Amet on the matter while proposing a coroner’s inquest into the incident to determine if there is a case against the officers involved.

He said preliminary investigations are ongoing currently. Meanwhile, investigations into the beheaded teacher in Madang also a month ago is very slow with little co-operation from locals in the area.

Madang Provincial Police Commander Chief Inspector Ben Neneo said locals in the area have issued threats to police following the shooting of the four youths which is causing delays.

PPC Neneo said investigations are at a slow pace as locals are afraid to give in information while the situation is still tense.
