In Papua New Guinea, “mysteriously” lost hundreds of luxury carsFebruary 15, 2019
Police in Papua New Guinea are searching for nearly 300 cars that were used during last year’s Asia-Pacific Economic Corporation (APEC) summit, and which mysteriously disappeared after it.
The government of the country located in Southeast Asia imported hundreds of luxury cars so that world leaders could move them during the conference. Among the imported cars were 40 Maserati and three Bentley.
Then the government announced that it would sell the cars after the summit, but Dennis Corcoran, the state inspector of the asset recovery unit, said on Tuesday that 284 vehicles were “missing”.
Fortunately, all 40 Maserati and three Bentley have not disappeared – they are closed in a special hangar in the local seaport, but at the same time the government did not count dozens of Toyota Land Cruiser, Mitsubishi Pajero, Ford and Mazda.
The local police have already stated that at least nine vehicles were stolen, and several more were returned with serious damages, and many of the vehicles “spread out” to government offices in different parts of the country, but it will not be difficult to track them down because the police have a list of all who wrote cars.
Interestingly, the government of Papua New Guinea had previously faced serious resentment among locals when it decided to purchase hundreds of expensive cars during a polio outbreak in the country. Many residents were against the need to spend so much money on vehicles for the summit.
