MINISTER CALLS FOR CO-ORDINATION BETWEEN LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES

The government is aware of cases of foreigners sexually abusing young local women and is investigating those all Asian-run sex, drugs and prostitution cartels.
PNG’s Internal Security Minister Peter Tsiamalili Jr announced this yesterday following an exclusive revelation by three girls on the front page of the Post-Courier, who alleged they were drugged and sexually abused in an exclusive downtown apartment, where their captors made sex movies of them being raped for pornographic distribution.
Describing the events as ‘horrendous’ and ‘gut- wrenching’, Mr Tsiamalili said those foreigners and their PNG associates will be dealt with ‘swiftly’.
“In yesterday’s newspaper we are reminded of this threat with the alleged trafficking of young girls in our country as sex slaves, claimed to be linked with foreign criminal cartels,” an angry Mr Tsiamalili said.
“This includes articulating the threat posed by international organised crime organisations, that have been linking up with domestic criminals, and causing terrible harm to our people at a local level.
“These allegations are horrendous and gut-wrenching, they are being fully investigated and for those involved in these activities, particularly if any government officials have been compromised, justice will be swift and unwavering.”
“This matter highlights the need for better co-ordination between disciplined forces and intelligence agencies, ideally through a joint operational body that has the authority to issue command orders.”
The response from the Community Development Department has been swift with the Office of Child Welfare and Family Service Director Simon Yanis calling for a special taskforce team to be established to investigate the exploitation of young girls by foreigners.
“There is possibility of creating an interagency taskforce team to investigate nightclubs, hotels, pubs and shops where you will find a lot of employed underage girls being sexually abused,” said Mr Yanis.
The three young victims, all in their 20s, revealed that they were coerced into attending a party at the apartment where they were allegedly drugged and raped and held captive for three days.
They reported the matter to police but claimed their captors allegedly used their ‘protection’ network to hinder police and immigrations investigation.
The Post-Courier is assisting law enforcement agencies with information in their investigations.
