New low as police chief robbed

THE reputation of Papua New Guinea's capital as one of the world's most crime-ridden cities has been given an unwanted boost with news that Port Moresby's police chief was assaulted and robbed within sight of a major police station.

Assistant Commissioner Tony Wagambie was held up and assaulted on Wednesday by six armed men who stole his vehicle, a mobile phone and a small amount of cash, a police spokesman said today. Mr Wagambie was in uniform just 400m from Port Moresby's Gordons Police Station.

Port Moresby, where criminal gangs from poverty-stricken shantytowns carry out robberies, carjackings and rapes with near impunity, has figured for years in last place in a "livability" survey of more than 100 major world cities by the London-based Economist Intelligence Unit. The survey cites random violence and rampant crime by the so-called 'raskol' crime gangs as the main reason for Port Moresby's rating.

Sounds like a prime target for some nuclear urban renewal. :thumb:
