4:53 pm GMT+12, 18/04/2017, Solomon Islands

The Solomon Islands Government has deplored what it describes as ‘cold-blooded murder’ of a naturalised couple in the capital, Honiara.
 
The Royal Solomon Islands Police Force are continuing their investigations and are treating the circumstances surrounding the deaths as suspicious.
 
In a statement, Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare said, “We condemn in the strongest term, the cold- blooded murder of the naturalised Solomon Islands couple in Honiara recently.”
 
“Such a barbaric act is totally unacceptable in our society. The couple of Chinese origin is amongst the naturalised Solomon Islands citizens who have committed themselves to doing business in Solomon Islands and in doing so have contributed to government revenue collections.”
 
The Prime Minister also conveyed the Government’s profound condolences to the children of the couple, their other family members both in Solomon Islands and abroad and also the Solomon Islands Chinese Community.
 
He assured them that the Government through the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force will ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice.
