| The PNG News Page
PORT MORESBY - A notorious criminal linked to a shooting and carjacking incident has been arrested by police at Erima settlement in the National Capital District
Tony Dama Marshall, a hardened criminal wanted for a series of crimes, was caught in a massive police manhunt after a man was shot and his car stolen at Erima.
The victim sustained a bullet wound to his head and was rushed to hospital as police swung into action, combing through the settlement.
Metropolitan Superintendent Gideon Ikumu said the incident was broadcasted on the police radio network and the stolen car was spotted by Fox 204 at Erima.
Ikumu said the suspects jumped out of the moving vehicle and fled into the settlement.
Police reinforcements immediately joined the search and Marshall was eventually found, arrested and taken into custody.
This compensation nonsense must stop
| Modern Papua New Guinean
WHAT would you do if someone stabbed you for no good reason? Yeah, I know, you will definitely demand compensation.
What would you do if someone raped your mom? Yeah, I know, you will definitely demand compensation.
Where are we heading PNG? Are we objects? Can you purchase a life to wake your dead aunt?
Why are we blaming the government for law and order issues?
It's very simple. Let the law deal with those who breach it.
Here are three good reasons to ban compensation:
- We are making the law useless.
- We are making ourselves objects.
- We are encouraging people to breach the law because they know that compensation will set them free.
