Check this letter to The National newspaper which appeared on Thursday, January 8, 2009, and the reply above from Police Commissioner Gari Baki above.
By DAVID WILLIAMS
With due respect, I believe Police Commissioner Gari Baki is completely out of touch with reality when he said that “I have been a law enforcement officer for more than 35 years and I know, for a fact, that we have not had 54 murders in Port Moresby at any one time over the last 10 years. In fact, our annual average nationwide was much less.”
I would go so far as to say, that if Mr Baki genuinely believed this was the case, then he should resign immediately.
The National, on Nov 2, 2007, (http://www.thenational.com.pg/110207/ Nation&209.html) reported: “Statistics showed that there were 424 murder cases reported this year and 496 last year.
Please wake up, Mr Baki. – David Williams,
