Police Commissioner David Manning has commended those that have and continued to work tirelessly in the pursuit of Justice pertaining to the Paul Paraka case, which resulted in a conviction recently by the National Court.
“This includes the Prime Minister, the Public Prosecutor’s office, the Department of Justice and Attorney General, the Solicitor General, and members of the Fraud Squad,” said Manning.
“I thank you one and all for your contribution one way or another in successfully assisting the State prosecution.”
Manning said the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC) is responsible for investigations, maintenance of peace, law and order and upholding of the Constitution, and has assured the country that this is not the end of this investigation into the Paraka case because further prosecutions will follow.
“The RPNGC will do all things legally mandated and required in order to pursue, investigate, charge and arrest those involved, and to recoup all money lost in these illegal deals.”
He stated that the actions of corrupt individuals involved in this matter have caused terrible impact to the economy of the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, and the welfare of the people.
