Papua New Guinea is one of the world’s last lawless lands lying 150 kilometres north of Australia.
The town of Lae is the economic capital of the country here it more commonly goes by the name “Pothole city”.
It’s a sorry sight with its battered roads it’s packed mini buses and it’s extreme levels of poverty. In the streets uncertainty reigns and the police are ineffective trying to keep law and order the locals call upon private security companies.
Papua New Guinea has one of the highest crime rates on the planet. Papua New Guinea is an island half as big as France but with a road network that practically does not exist. There are just 3 main roads that are barely tarmac and yet road transport is vital for the country.
