Radio Australia: PNG officials move Papuan activists

A group of West Papuan activists says PNG officials are treating them “like criminals”.

A group of West Papuan activists says Papua New Guinean immigration officials are treating them “like criminals” after they were moved to PNG’s remote west.

Seven West Papuans – including a pregnant woman and a 10-year-old boy – have been staying in a hotel in Port Moresby for the past fortnight after being deported from Australia.

On Saturday PNG immigration officials, accompanied by two armed policemen, put them on a plane and flew them to Kiunga in Western Province, where they are staying with members of the local West Papuan community.
