The National,Wednesday June 29th, 2016

ALL roads leading into the University of PNG and University of Technology will be manned by police and university security officers when the curfew comes into effect.
Acting Police pommissioner Jim Andrews in a statement yesterday also said police detectives had been tasked to investigate acts of arson, damaging property, assault plus the killing of the Unitech student on Saturday in his dormitory.
“The university councils in Port Moresby and Lae have agreed in principle to assist the law enforcement agencies in whatever way they can,” he said.
“It includes identifying suspects involved in any act of crime perpetrated over the past few weeks.”
He said the investigations would find out whether students were incited, coerced or influenced by outside sources.
“We would also look into the activities of certain individuals who have and are continuing to use Facebook and other social media to advocate and post anti-government slogans inciting and provoking students and citizens to revolt and cause acts of violence,”he said.
“Everyone affected by the recent spate of violence should come forward and assist the investigators once the curfew is enforced.”
