Pair arrested over threats to NCD Governor

A man and a woman in Port Moresby found out the hard way that the anonymity of technology cannot protect them from the long arm of the law, The National reports, as they were arrested and charged for making threats to the National Capital District (NCD) Governor, Powes Parkop.

The pair allegedly from Chimbu was arrested at 9 Mile outside Port Moresby last Saturday and charged under the Telecommunications Act. They were later released on K1000 bail each and await their court appearance.

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Andy Bawa, indicated that intelligence suggested more people were involved. He said:

“Besides these two suspects brought into custody any others who are still at large will be brought in and dealt accordingly.”

Governor Parkop had received death threats via a text message over the total ban of betelnut in city.
