Main Stories

THE 11 accomplices of Milne Bay’s notorious fugitive Tommy Baker have been moved to Port Moresby from Alotau and charged.
Police Commissioner Gari Baki, pictured, told The National that a full report would be released today.
The 11 were taken to Port Moresbecause there was no magistrate in Alotau.
“We have brought the 11 in, got their particulars and have charged them with the various crimes they were involved in,” Baki’s office said earlier yesterday.
“We have already collected eyewitness statements and they are awaiting to appear in court.”
The commissioner’s office also said that at the moment they could not release information because investigations were ongoing.
“However, the operation is ongoing as police continues the search for Tommy Baker and his gang,” it said.
“We appeal to the people of Milne Bay, Central and Port Moresby to come forward with any information they have on Baker or his gang that may lead to their arrest.” The 11 are being held at an undisclosed venue in the capital.
Meanwhile, investigations have been completed into the Bomana prison officers who were in charge of Baker when he escaped from the Port Moresby General Hospital last year.
Correctional Services acting commissioner Stephen Pokanis said the report would be sent to him.
