|Police Commissioner Gari Baki|
PNG Police Commissioner Gari Baki is calling on the members of public who are affected by Police crimes and abuses to report to his office. He said this after he raised concerns over the circulation of a video on social media and Facebook showing a woman being purportedly forced by police to chew and swallow condoms.
Mr Baki has appealed to the victim to come forward and help internal investigators identify the people involved.
He said in a statement that although the footage does not show the rogue police, it was almost certain that the crime was committed inside a police station.
The commissioner is also certain that the voice of the man forcing the victim to chew and swallow the condoms can be identified.
The Commissioner said the perpetrator will be dismissed from the constabulary and criminally charged.
The constabulary has set procedures to allow such allegations or crimes perpetrators by police to be reported, Mr Baki said.
He stated that such complaints can be registered with the director of internal affairs PO Box 85, Konedobu, or addressed directly to his office at the police headquarters.
He added that the senior management of the constabulary was trying to weed out corruption, police abuse and unethical behaviour.
"We will not tolerate such crimes, I appeal to members of the public affected by such crimes and abuses to report them to the constabulary’s public complaints section so that suspects can be dealt with both administratively and criminally."
