Killing of prisoners in Baisu barbaric

Briefs, Letters

HOW on earth can the barbaric act of killing prisoners happen?
As a citizen of PNG, I am not impressed with prison officers in Baisu.
Why can’t the officers give a decent answer when asked whether they would be transferred to another facility following the death of some inmates from dysentery-type symptoms?
I call on the CS minister and his commissioner to launch an immediate investigation into the matter and the officers involved in the shooting should be suspended pending investigations.
