    Breaking News: PNG police commissioner issues order to get PNG opposition Leader Belden Namah arrested

     

    Papua New Guinea police commissioner issues orders to get outspoken PNG opposition Leader Belden Namah arrest over what he claims threats issued to him.  Commissioner Kulunga issued the orders upon close examination of a letter sent by Mr Namah on Friday 17th November 2014. Mr Namah wrote that he was aggrieved that Commissioner Kulunga had “taken action to pervert justice” and requested that he reinstate the four policemen suspended over the Paul Paraka case and cause them to be given exclusive use of all police assets to assist them to implement their duties. “Failure to accede to my request will result in me taking unprecedented measure to have you arrested and charged under Section 128 of PNG Criminal Code.However, Commissioner Kulunga said, “We are fed up with the tantrums of the Opposition Leader who is acting like an impatient, insensitive and thoughtless child. He does not respect the rule of law nor does he respect the systems and processes in place. “Furthermore, this very matter is to be heard by a competent court on Monday and yet he has seen fit to write to me and threaten to arrest me over this matter. The Opposition Leader thinks he can take on the roles and responsibilities of everyone. Here he is a complainant, an investigator, a prosecutor and now he wants to be the judge also. “I will not allow the actions of an impatient, irrational and erratic man to threaten peace and stability within the country. He will be arrested forthwith for threatening,” Mr Kulunga said.

     

    This comes just one day after certain police personals obtain search warrant to have access to mobile data belonging to Opposition Leader from a local mobile operator Bmobile PNG.
