 THE state has ignored court orders to move William Nanua Kapris to Bomana jail in Port Moresby for safety reasons cited in their own urgent application since last year due to lack of funds.

The application made on a Saturday by senior state prosecutor, Pondros Kaluwin, who is currently on leave, stated that for security reasons Kapris had to be quickly sent to Bomana and not be kept at Beon or be allowed to join his accomplices at the main compound.

According to Kapris’ lawyer David Dotaona, who did not seem surprised when told of his clients predicament, said: “What is the purpose of the application then if the state was adamant that he be moved to Bomana due to intelligence reports from the National Intelligence Organisation (NIO) that he would either be assassinated or aided to escape if kept at Beon by some outside accomplices.”

“Ask the Correctional Service Commissioner or Kaluwin why Kapris is still at Beon,” Dotaona added.
