National Capital District Metropolitan Superintendent Benjamin Turi says police will not tolerate any unlawful procession or gathering in the city as Port Moresby is hosting major international events.
“We will not allow anything like processions, people going around in groups and rallying or public gatherings to happen when big events are happening,” he said.
“We have the Women’s Under-20 World Cup trial matches since last week and the ACP meeting going on in the city since Monday.”
Turi said police were present and monitoring the city since last week and nothing was happening.
“Whoever decides to hold gathering or procession, police will deal with you.”
Turi said police in NCD had too much to worry about than dealing with student and civil society issues.
He denied rumours on social media that UPNG students attempted to stage a forum on campus on Tuesday and a protest at parliament yesterday.
“Students are not allowed to stage a forum in the campus because the school is closed. Police in the campus will prevent any gathering,” Turi said.
He said police units at the ACP meeting were also monitoring the Parliament area.
