Alleged to have happened at police station, involve officer

MELBOURNE, Australia (Radio Australia, December 24, 2015) – Authorities in Papua New Guinea are investigating a video purporting to show a police officer forcing a woman to eat condoms.

The video, posted on several PNG Facebook groups and viewed by ABC's Pacific Beat program, shows a woman being bullied by at least one man who is off-camera.

The man abuses the woman and threatens to put her in a police cell if she refuses to unwrap and eat two condoms.

It is alleged the incident happened at a police station in the capital, Port Moresby, or Goroka in Eastern Highlands Province.

PNG's police media unit said it was unclear who the man and woman are, and if police were involved.

It said the nation's police commissioner was very concerned by the video and had ordered an immediate investigation.

The media unit said if a police officer was found to have been involved they would be dealt with accordingly.
