President of the PNG Football Association John Kapi Natto is calling on the ICT Minister Timothy Masiu to work on regulating social media in Papua New Guinea. 

Mr Kapi Natto made this call after being a victim of cybercrime, following the termination of contract of PNG’s National Women’s Coach Nicola Demaine.

The exit of coach Demaine, who coached the victorious PNG side in the OFC Women’s World Cup qualifiers several months ago in Suva (Fiji), resulted in an out pour of critics of all kinds. 

Some of these critics went to the extreme in using of abusive languages, defaming the character of Mr Kapi Natto and his immediate family.  

Those involved in the cyber crime are now under thorough investigation, and one male has already been arrested and charged. 

This person is known to be an employee of a hotel in Port Moresby.

Mr Kapi Natto says using social media has its advantages but also its disadvantages.

He says PNG needs to regulate social media because it’s causing a lot of cyber-bulling and problems” 

He also mentioned that those that use social media should use their real names instead of fake names.
