Police and traditional leaders to attempt standardization

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, October 10, 2015) – The police in Solomon Islands have started efforts to tackle excessive compensation claims in Honiara.

The director of the police community policing and public relations unit, Solomon Sisimia, says a two-day workshop hopes to come up with a standardised arrangement for addressing traditional compensation claims.

Mr Simisia says the meeting between traditional leaders and law enforcement agencies is a result of an increasing number of excessive compensation claims around Honiara.

He says some claims for compensation have been double the traditional standards.
