1. Wilma Dongo age 27 of Mapos village Mumeng District Morobe Province;

2. Dorothy Jarick age 27 of Ali Village, Aitape Lumi District, West Sepik Province;

They were all employed by Air Niugini as cashiers when they committed the offences.

The monies have come into their possessions on the account of their employer by virtue of their employment and duty and responsibilities, however, defrauded their employer.

The three were senior cashiers working at Business Travel Centre (BTC) Waterfront Konedobu ticket sales office and developed a scheme whereby they would take out cash and hoped to balance it the next day, however, they failed to have cash balanced the next day which led to huge cash short fall which accumulated. They all colluded together and came up with the scheme.

The matter was reported National Fraud & Anti-Corruption Directorate for investigation by the management of Air Niugini. At the completion of the police investigation into the matter, they were invited to the NFACD office at Knedobu where they were all individually interviewed. They admitted to their crimes.

After the interview was concluded, and after the arrest and charge procedure was completed, they were taken to Boroko Police Station where they were placed in the cells.
