Get your facts right, Baki

Check this letter to The National newspaper which appeared on Thursday, January 8, 2009, and the reply above from Police Commissioner Gari Baki above.


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, ( Nation&209.html) reported: “Statistics showed that there were 424 murder cases reported this year and 496 last year. Port Moresby and Western Highlands province (WHP) reported the highest cases of rape and murder this year. But Port Moresby has seen a decrease with 95 murder cases reported this year compared to 119 last year.”

Please wake up, Mr Baki. – David Williams, Port Moresby
