Is Win Win Company Above the Law?

Win Win company is back in the spotlight, this time on charges relating to the alleged use of replica firearms to threaten a community in central Guadalcanal.

This is the same company that flaunted the laws of the country when they tried to export gold illegally out of the country, they were caught but later got away with an ‘administrative fine.’

Win Win company had a visit from high-ranking police officers, including officers from the China Police Liaison Team (CPLT). The visit was said to be part of the community engagement with the community stipulated under the Crime Prevention Strategy of the RSIPF.

The timing is suspect, since the visit was shortly after one of their managers intimidated a community, allegedly with a replica firearm. The manager was arrested a few days before the community engagement visit by the police and the China Police Liaison Team (CPLT).

What does this say about the independence of our police force and the CPLT? Who are the police and CPLT protecting? It appears that the interests of this company ranks first, communities and their grievances second.

Leader of the Opposition, Mathew Wale, says:

“Fishy dealings create distrust & RSIPF should keep a healthy distance from such organisations and not give them any appearance of credibility. This is poor judgment on the part of RSIPF.”

The Opposition Leader said allegations that there is also a split in the RSIPF on the Win Win investigations are also of grave concern.

He said RSIPF must carry out its investigation without fear or favour and that police must avoid any political interference or whatsoever.

“I must salute the police officers that are carrying out their mandated duties and I urge them to continue to clamp down on such cases out there,” he said.
