West Papua Conflict Reflection by Governor – General Sir Bob Dadae

PNG Vice – Regal Sir Bob Dadae referred to the hard yards gained by the late Dr Lawrence Kalinoe who as Secretary of Department of Justice and Attorney – General gave West Papuan refugees free passage to become PNG citizens. 

The Vice – Regal spoke at the funeral mass of the late Dr Lawrence Kalinoe. He said Dr Kalinoe’s work both on West Papua and Bougainville are stand – alone examples of a great countryman who listened with his heart.https://www.thenational.com.pg/former-senior-civil-servant-kalinoe-dies-in-hospital/

We thank Vice – Regal for mentioning West Papua. The other side of our island always forms part of the conversation for us all from Sorong to Samarai.
