The mother of the boys and girl, Lucielle Paru writes:
“My sons and daughter were walking at Ela Beach heading for an afternoon Service when attacked by NCD City Rangers on Sunday at 4pm.
The weapons used were iron rods and metal pipes. Amongst the NCD City Rangers was a woman who also hit my son with a pipe smashing his nose. Medical reports now show permanent damage to his nose. The bone structure in fragments.
Governor Powes Parkop and Authorities, is this what you have your rangers do to children?
The beach is already open to public. Is it crime to walk on the pathway to church?
These children don’t even chew or smoke or drink. My sons are disciplined athletes. One is our own rep for the Olympic and Pacific Games and PNG gold medalist. You have destroyed my son’s chosen career as a boxer. He has never fought on the streets or anywhere. He fights only in the ring.
A report was put at Town Police Station. We will be suing NCD and the city rangers
An RR unit fired a warning shot at the Rangers but was ignored.. A Central couple who attempted to help my boys and their sister were also set upon by the rangers.
NCD Governor Powes Parkop, I demand justice for an unwarranted and complete unjustified attack for no crime committed at all
City rangers who were involved will and must be brought to face charges and compensate for damages and almost killing my sons and abusing my daughter.”
