JUSTICE AT LAST FOR DEBBIE
Following months of court battle, a member of the PNG Defense Force was sentenced last Friday to two-year hard labor at Bomana Jail outside Port Moresby.
Justice Sir Gibbs Salika was convinced by evidences before the court that second Lieutenant, Murray Oa, 34, was found guilty of bodily harming his partner, Debbie Kaore. She is a female rugby league star.
Oa assaulted her in June, 2020 for allegedly having produced a Tiktok video with a guy.
Evidences say on June 4, 2020, Ao arrived at his Goldie home intoxicated and questioned his partner on the video.
He punched her on the face before she could explain it. Defending herself from more punches, the victim lost her balance and fell onto the floor. Whilst she was lying on the floor, the accused burnt her with a hot clothing iron on her abdomen, left cheek and chest.
