POLICE on Monday sent send a clear message to anyone who involves and or instigate illegal activities that they will face the full force of the laws.
Honiara City Police Commander Gabriel Manelusi told the Solomon Star police will not tolerate anyone taking laws in their own hands.
Mr Manelusi was referring to those involving and or planning more instability to the city after the riots last Friday.
“Police are on full alert at the moment and are actively investigating. Police had made a considerable number of arrests so far and will continue to hunt down those involve.
“Police will not tolerate any nonsense that may cause instability to the peaceful coexistence of Honiara city dwellers,” Mr Manelusi said.
He said people should respect the laws.
“Whatever grievances or disagreements we have, there are proper channels. Causing havoc and disturbances to people and daily flow of vital services must stop.
“We are painting a really bad picture of our country to the outside world. We are not helping ourselves here.
“Such illegal activities affect businesses and vital services. Many people with hearts from outside the country had helped with good spirit during the flood disaster therefore; we must continue to show our peacefulness and appreciation.
“Take your disagreements through right channels to avoid further trouble to the trouble already brought about by the natural disaster.”
Mr Manelusi appealed to leaders to help talk to their people to stay away from trouble.
“No one wants such trouble, everyone wants normalcy to services. We cannot continue to live under threats, therefore the public must help police with information that may lead to defusing any possible trouble and or identifying people involve.”
