Fast-track penalty for Black Cat Track attackers : PNG MP

THE recent killings on the Black Cat Track in Morobe have forced the government to fast track work on the death penalty for serious crimes. 
Gazelle MP Malakai Tabar, who has been vocal on the death penalty issue, again called on the Government through the Minister for Justice and Attorney-General and Minister for Correctional Services to fast track the process to see that justice was served for those responsible for killing the two porters on the Black Cat Track in Bulolo district two weeks ago. 
Tabar spoke with urgency during a grievance debate in Parliament last Friday saying PNG must ensure justice was served on the families of the men killed. 
Tabar said he supported the Prime Minister’s statement last week that the death penalty should be imposed on those responsible. 
“I believe PNG is due to witness the death penalty because of the high rate of serious crimes causing problems in the communities,” he said. 
“I think it is about time Justice Minister and Correctional Service Minister must lead and implement the death penalty law that was already passed in Parliament. 
“Situation is that there will be criminal activities that will disturb good opportunities and better lives of many people including those at the rural level. The death penalty must be implemented.”
He said the Government should ensure that the country was safe and laws were effectively implemented for the good of the people. 
The law on death penalty was passed in Parliament in July to control the rise in serious crimes in the country.
