Solomon Islands, riots in the capital: Government imposes curfew

Australia sends troops and police – Australia has announced that it has sent troops to the Solomon Islands. The Prime Minister said
Scott Morrison threatens to overthrow Hon’ble government after two days of violent uprising. “Our goal is to provide stability and security.”

Premier Soga: “We will take over those responsible” – “The government’s investigation is working to find those responsible for the devastation. They will face the law. No one is above the law,” he told reporters. On the evening of November 24, Sogavare signed a 36-hour curfew order that would allow police to further investigate what had happened, according to statements collected by a local newspaper.

Is China behind the agitation? – The protesters come mainly from the most populous province of Malaysia, the Solomon Islands. They are demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Manasseh Sogaware because of the conflict between the Malita provincial government led by Daniel Suidani and Sogaware’s national government. Relations between Suydani and Sogaware deteriorated when he decided to move to China from Taiwan’s diplomatic approval. According to the Solomon Times, Suydani was a fierce critic of the move and paid a bribe to move to China.
