Seven charged for Ramu mine office damages

Why is it the police never arrested anyone from BHP Billiton for all the damage they did to the Fly river, or Rio Tinto for the damage to the Jaba river or Barrick Gold for all the damage around Porgera?

Seems the Royal PNG police are not here to protect the people of PNG but only foreign companies…

 SEVEN people, including a man of Asian origin, have been charged in connection with the damage at the Kurumbukari Ramu Nickel office in Madang.

Police say they will not rest until all involved are arrested.

Momase police chief Superintendent Nema Mondiai said there were some more people hiding in Madang, Lae, Goroka and in the highway settlements.

“The damage done is huge. Seven suspects were arrested and charged, including an expatriate of Asian origin. More are still at large,” he said.

“Police investigation will continue until all are arrested and charged.”

Mondiai, the Acting Assistant Police Commissioner for Momase, said detectives were investigating and supported by mobile squad officers because of the violent attitude of some people wanted for questioning.

He said those arrested were ring leaders, including the expatriate, who was an engineer.

They have been charged with inciting to fight, malicious damage and arson.
