It has emerged in Papua New Guinea that three police station commanders in the capital Port Moresby have recently been served with three-week suspensions.

The National newspaper reports the commander of the Port Moresby town station, Inspector John Keri, was suspended about two weeks ago for lack of commitment in carrying out his duties.

His temporary replacement, Inspector Fred Tundu, was then found drunk and sleeping in a police vehicle in Gerehu on October the 31st.

The Badili station commander Inspector Vincent Pokas was the suspended for allegedly being drunk when he crashed a police vehicle into another one at the PNG Institute of Public Administration.
