Arm group of men with weapons enter the Metropolis Development site at Mamara and cause some damages to its properties
Officers of the Royal Solomon Island Police Force (RSIPF) at Henderson Police Station are investigating an arm group of men who enter the Metropolis Development site at Mamara in West Guadalcanal and damages some properties on 16 April 2021.
Provincial Police Commander (PPC) Guadalcanal Province Chief Superintendent Alfred Uiga says, “The group of men have entered the Mamara site on three vehicles fully arm with weapons. The group of men moved in to the site aggressively and chase the Chinese workers and using abusive words towards them.”
PPC Uiga says, “It will alleged that the motive behind the incident is because of a Chinese worker harassed two local female workers previously so they went in to ask compensation.”
Chief Superintendent Uiga says, “Sad thing is some police officers and a former police officer involved in the incident which is not reflect well as a discipline organisation. My team will send complete files to Professional Internal Investigation Department (PSII) to deal with police officers who involved.”
Mr Uiga says, “Police identify the suspects and the vehicles used. The suspect will not hide and they should come forward to police. In any conflict, there is a way to deal with such matters. Dot not try to take the laws in to your own hands. It is a serious allegation and police will take stern action for such actions.”
