National

SHERIFF officers will take over the roles of providing security services in the National and Supreme Courts in the country.
This follows a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC), Office of the Sheriff and the National and Supreme Courts yesterday in Port Moresby.
The MoU also provided for the sheriff officers to ensure that court processes are enforced in an orderly and coordinated manner.
Police Commissioner Gari Baki, Sheriff of PNG Ian Augerea and Chief Justice Sir Salamo Injia signed the MoU.
“One of the key milestones that will be achieved under this regime is that the Sheriff of PNG will take over the role of providing security services for the courts, which is now under the administration of National and Judicial Staff and Services,” Sir Salamo said.
“The Sheriff will take over the responsibility of ensuring that court processes are enforced in an orderly and coordinated manner, in particularly the Sheriff will take on the responsibility of the execution of court processes,” he said.
