The police chief in Papua New Guinea's Manus province has justified the use of a curfew for refugees in Lorengau.
The 6pm to 6am curfew was imposed last week after a local woman died in a car crash on Manus Island.
According to Manus police commander, David Yapu, the car was being driven by a Pakistani refugee who has been charged with dangerous driving causing death.
He is also charged with driving without a driver's licence and for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Mr Yapu told Johnny Blades says that given feelings in the Manus community after the woman's death, there's a need to restrict the movement of the refugees at this time.
