Police to enforce curfew at state universities
Police will be enforcing a curfew the University of Papua New Guinea’s (UPNG) Waigani and Taurama campus, and the University of Technology’s (Unitech) Taraka campus following the recent incident which resulted in the destruction properties, injuries to campus security personnel and murder of a student.
According to the Post Courier (June 30), about 350 police personnel will be deployed at the campuses to enforce the dusk to dawn curfew which takes effect today.
Unitech vice chancellor, Dr Albert Schram, in The National (June 30), said the curfew was to maintain order following recent acts of violence. The curfew will start at 7pm and end at 6am.
Meanwhile, criminal elements have taken advantage of the situation at UPNG with the recent break in into one of the female dormitories recently. Fortunately, none of the residents were hurt during the ordeal.
