Police director of crime acting Assistant Commissioner Donald Yamasombi said he had received a report from police officers involved in the raid on the premises at Hohola last Thursday night. They were accompanied by Labour and Immigration officers.
Yamasombi said he was awaiting advice from the Immigration officers on when to charge the foreigners. Labour Secretary George Vaso said yesterday he would release a statement later on the operation.
“I will get a comprehensive report from my officers involved in the raid by this (yesterday) afternoon,” he said.
Chief Migration Officer Mataio Rabura was yesterday in Manus and was waiting for the report.
A police officer familiar with the case who asked not to be identified said the local girl caught watching pornographic material at the premises with a male foreigner would be charged. “The local girl is in police custody while the foreign suspects are now under the Immigration’s custody,” the officer said.
The officer said one of the foreigners who had a medical condition was under the care of Immigration officers.
“They were questioned and only three produced passports..”
The officer said the suspects face charges in relation to the breaching of immigration laws. The officers confiscated computers, printers and material used to produce fake passports, visas and work permits.
