Expat alleges assault against Kerenge Kua.
Papua New Guinea’s (PNG) Attorney General and Justice Minister, Kerenge Kua, is alleged to have assaulted and threatened an expat manager in October last year, according to reports in The National.

It is alleged that Mr Kua assaulted Collin Hunter; an electrical manager with Aisi-Bishman Contractors. The incident happened at a property owned by the minister in Gabaka Street, Gordon.

According to Mr Hunter, he went to the property to investigate an assault claim by one of his guards when he met Kua, with 12 security guards. He said:
"I was trying to greet him when he started shouting that I had wrecked his property and he punched me in the face." 
"I attempted to reason with him and explain my side of the issue while he continued to punch me in between yelling accusations that I was a con man and cheated him."
Mr Hunter said he managed to run out of the property gate and drove straight to the Boroko Police Station where he reported the matter. He also said despite threats of deportation by his assailant, he would pursue the matter and ensure the case proceeds to the courts.

The National stated that Mr Kua could not be contacted for a comment. However, it is understood that Prime Minister, Peter O’Neil, is aware of the matter.

National Capital District Metropolitan Superintendent, Andy Bawa, is reportedly also aware of the assault and has assigned an officer to the case.
