29 victims of the alleged sexual harassment by a Catholic priest at a secondary school in Milne Bay province in Papua New Guinea have had their cases formally investigated and completed by police.
 
Provincial Police Commander Chief Inspector George Bayagau confirmed that among the 29 victims are five teachers.
 
He has also instructed the officers from police sexual violence unit handling the case to speed up the process.
 
“We have done case by case reports from all 29 victims and are ready to call the suspect,” he said.
 
He said the victims were from various classes and include male students as well.
 
In March, police received public complaints of inappropriate behaviour by the priest. At that time, 17 girls, some non-Catholic had complained about what they regarded as inappropriate behaviour by the school chaplain
