Alleged Discovery of Military and Police Uniforms at Komo Airport fake : PNGEC

 The Papua New Guinea Assistant Commissioner Operations Samson Kua has called for the public to be more responsible when releasing information over social media, especially when they do not have all the facts on hand.

Mr Kua made this remark when posts on the social media alleged that a large unknown quantity of police and PNG Defence Force uniforms were confiscated whilst they were being transported into the Hela Province via the Komo Airport.

One of the posts on the Facebook page “PNG Political Limelights” claims that a flight chartered by a regional candidate for the Hela Province contained boxes of police and PNG Defence Force uniforms.

Mr Kua refuted this statement, saying, “This is not true and is totally irresponsible of the persons who released this. It has the potential to create fear and anxiety and further problems.”

Mr Kua confirmed that police have in fact confiscated one blue field uniform, three police Number One long pants with a GB boot as well as one set of PNG Defence Force camouflage uniform, one shirt and one short trouser. He said these items are now in police custody and investigations are being conducted into their origins.
