Police investigation into the recent shooting incident in a Port Moresby restaurant involving the Member for Moresby North- West Lohia Boe Samuel that resulted in the death of a man, is almost complete and police should make some arrests soon.
That is the word from Police Commissioner David Manning this morning at a press conference at the Police Headquarters in Port Moresby city.
Commissioner Manning was briefed regularly on a daily basis as to what the police investigators are doing since the shooting incident was first reported.
“We have established that a firearm was involved, we have established that someone was shot and killed as a result of a gunshot wound. We have established that the firearm does belong to a member of parliament and that he was there at that time when the incident occurred along with his associates,” said the police commissioner.
Manning said in the course of the investigation, police will be alleging that the member of parliament and his associates were responsible for that unfortunate incident and the investigation process will support that allegation.
“From what I have been brief on as of this morning, we have secured sufficient evidence to support that allegation that the member of parliament and his associates stand accused in this matter and I look forward to the completion of that investigation sometime today, and of course the necessary and appropriate action to be taken against those that we have evidence to support that allegation.”
Commissioner Manning later added that there is only one law in this country that covers every citizen and that it will apply to anyone regardless of status who breaks the law by committing a crime or crimes, and it’s the duty of police to enforce that law.
