Posted by Staff Reporter | October 20, 2018 | Posted in , ,

Tickets for the first of the two game International series next Saturday (October 27) between the PNG LNG Kumuls and England Knights in Lae will go on sale next Monday October 22, 2018. PNGRFL CEO Reatau Rau said the tickets will be on sale from 9am on Monday at Andersons, Eriku and Foodmart in Town. He added Brian Bell Homecentre at Lae Market will be confirmed by tomorrow.

He said the cost per ticket is K50. “This covers all the stands and the grass areas at the Lae Rugby League ground,” Rau said. He added the cost covers everybody from young to old. “Every person that enters the ground, whether a child or adult must purchase a ticket. There is no separate price for children,” Rau added.

He said this is the first appearance for the PNG LNG Kumuls in Lae since 2014 and the first time an International team is touring the country after more than 15 years or so therefore we believe K50 per person to host the game in Lae is affordable,” Rau said.

He said there are security features on the tickets to prevent counterfeiting and abuse. “The tickets have security features on them and will be scanned on entry so there is no space for cheating,” he said.

He urged the public to buy tickets early as there will be no sales on game day on Saturday. Gates at the Rugby League grounds will open at 9am on Saturday October 27, 2018. The curtain raiser will be an Under 20’s match which kicks off at 12.15pm. The International fixture between PNG LNG Kumuls and England Knights kicks off at 3pm.

Solomon Islands Police at Taro in Choiseul Province is investigating a fatal accident that occurred at the Kutu logging camp in East Choiseul which resulted in one death and two injuries on 10 October 2018.
Provincial Police Commander (PPC) Choiseul Province, Superintendent Vincent Eria says, “It was a sad incident that claimed the life of a male person in his 30’s from Lulimekolo Village. The group of seven local men were allegedly having a few beers after work at Dudurana log pond. After finishing their drinks they decided to travel to a nearby village to buy more.”
PPC Eria says, “It is alleged that on their way the driver lost control of the vehicle resulting in the vehicle going off the road into the bush causing the death of a passenger and injuring two others.”
Superintendent Eria adds: "The driver of the vehicle was arrested and remanded in custody to appear in the Gizo Magistrates Court on 29 October 2018.
“On behalf of the police, I wish to extend our condolences and sympathy to the family and relatives of the deceased for the untimely loss of one of their members,” says PPC Eria.
He adds: “I call on all parties involved in this incident to allow the police to progress its investigation into the matter and not to take the law into their own hands.”
Police warn employees, members of the public and responsible owners of vehicles and drivers to stop drink and drive and the common trend of unauthorised use of company, private and government vehicles for such illegal purposes.

Solomon Islands Police at Auki in Malaita Province have arrested a 21-year-old male person for allegedly raping a 10-year-old girl at Fulisango Village in Central Kwara’ae on 6 October 2018.
Police arrested the suspect on 18 October 2018.
The alleged rape incident happened in the evening of 6 October 2018 when the victim was on her way back to her house after watching movies at a nearby residence.
Provincial Police Commander (PPC) Malaita Province, Superintendent Timothy Apaesi says, “It is alleged that the victim was on her way back home when she met the suspect. The suspect allegedly got hold of her and led her to a road side and allegedly had sexual intercourse with her.”
PPC Apaesi says, “After the alleged act was committed, the victim went home. Upon arrival at her parents’ residence the mother of the victim noticed that her daughter was bleeding heavily and so they rushed her to Kilu’ufi Hospital where she was medically examined.
Superintendent Apaesi says, “The doctor confirmed that the victim had sexual intercourse with someone (male) and that was the moment the parents knew of what had happened to their daughter.”
He adds: “The matter was reported to police after which an investigation into the matter began. The suspect was on the run from the police until yesterday Thursday 18 October 2018 when my officers went to his village and had discussions with his parents and the relatives of the suspect to surrender himself to the police.”
“Following the discussions, the suspect surrendered himself and was brought to police at Auki where he was dealt,” says PPC Apaesi.”
Mr Apaesi says, “It is a sad incident to occur in our community. I call on youth, community and women leaders, chiefs and church elders to work together to discourage such behaviour in our communities. Police will not tolerate such behaviour but will prosecute such incidents.”
The suspect will appear in the Auki Magistrates Court on 2 November 2018.
