ALL FIVE RAPE SUSPECTS IN POLICE CUSTODY

All five suspects wanted for the rape of a Lae nurse  have been arrested by police. The arrests come against a backdrop of increasing calls for the death penalty to be imposed.
The Morobe Provincial Assembly’s Law and order chairman – the provincial equivalent of the National police minister – says he will be writing to the Prime Minister to seek tougher penalties or at least  reignite discussions about  the death penalty.
It  brings to mind a discussion with the former  police minister,   Bire Kimisopa who said: “As long as I am in government, no Papua New Guinean will be put to death.”
What should we do?
