FORMER Attorney-General Kerenga Kua has called upon police commissioner Gary Baki to direct his Wewak police commander to release the students who were verbally abused, assaulted and locked up for allegedly conducting “an illegal awareness campaign”. Kua said “this is one more proof that everything has been designed politically for political conveniences just to uphold one man.” https://www.facebook.com/namorongmartyn/posts/885642644877862
WEWAK police arrested students from UPNG, Unitech and high schools this morning for spreading information about the political awareness campaign. Students say they were beaten and the wife and baby of a student was locked up along with parents. East Sepik police commander Peter Philips says the students were arrested for driving around, causing a commotion and unlawfully assembling in the township area.
