Solomons govt warned on security

10:58 am on 20 December 2014

The new Solomon Islands government has been warned to tread carefully in the transition or withdrawal of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands.

The former police minister and member of parliament for Shortlands province, Chris Laore, made the comments yesterday in his contribution to the motion of Sine Die which wound up parliament for the year.

"As a former minister of police I want to caution the government that the transition is embedded in the core of our law and order. And once not handled carefully, this institution named RAMSI. Most of the law and order of this institution will be greatly affected."
