Mug shot of number 152, where is this character?

December 15, 2012 at 2:48 am (Commentary, East Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea, Photos, Sepik River)

 

005

Number 152: Australia’s most wanted!

He was last reported in the backblocks of Manila in the Philippines,

and was said to be arranging

a clandestine visit to the Sepik River in Papua New Guinea.

His past report shows that he could be up to anything.

In the far reaches of the Keram River, in the village of Kekten,

there is said to live many of his old associates, who in

the past were instrumental in polluting the Murik Lakes

with the deadly residual insecticide DDT.

The late William Eichhorn MBE  observed his activities

in the Keram River area in 2009,

and Peter Johnson CBE has a complete dossier on this individual.

If you see him, do not approach him, do not attempt to speak to him.

If he leaves the area, get a description of him to the nearest police station.

There is a substantial reward for information about this illegal character,

which includes a luxury trip to Broome in Western Australia,

and a month of camping on  James Price Point,

the ‘approved’ gas processing precinct in the Kimberley!
