Police are following up on a number of leads on the shooting at Mbike Island in the Central Islands Province according to Police Commissioner Frank Prendergast.
Mr Prendergast said police are actively onto some “promising leads” but maintained his consistency in not talking about operational issues in detail.
In December last year, some men discharged firearm at a location where a group of Members of Parliament were camping in preparation for the election of the Prime Minister as lobbying intensified.
Mr Prendergast said investigation is still continuing at full strength and they will continue until they solved the case.
He urged anyone with any information report to police.
“It is everyone’s interest to solve this case and I really do urge people in the community to come forward if they do have information.
The police commissioner said anyone who is concern about their safety can contact police and they can work out a way in which the information can be transmitted safely.
“We suspect there are people in the community that have information that has not been shared with us. I call on them to assist us.
“I’m very conscious that sometimes, because of the circumstances of these types of crimes, people can be reluctant to come forward because they are concern about their own safety.
“Don’t be afraid because we will be able to protect them if they come forward.”
One suspect has been arrested and is now facing court in relation to the 9 December 2014 shooting.
He was allegedly said to be the skipper of the outboard motor canoe used during the shooting.
A group of men fired shots at a fast craft used by Members of Parliament camping on the island, hours before the election of the prime minister
But the shooters failed in their attempt and the fast craft was able to return the MPs in time for the election.
They eventually elected Manasseh Sogavare as prime minister.
