Poindimié, New Caledonia: Torching military vehicles in their lair

Vehicles set on fire in Poindimié : the prosecutor announces the opening of an investigation
In a statement sent on Thursday 16 December 2021, the prosecutor announced the opening of an investigation for “destruction and attempted destruction of property by fire or means dangerous to persons”. “Acts committed on two vehicles of the national gendarmerie in Poindimié on 16 December 2021 at 04:20”, said the prosecutor.

Late at night, two individuals entered the car park of the Tiéti Hotel with a 5-litre can of petrol. They doused a TRM 2000 vehicle (military transport) with petrol and set it on fire. They also doused a P4 vehicle (military 4X4) with petrol, but did not have time to set it on fire because they were driven away by the gendarme on duty in the car park. This same gendarme took care to extinguish the fire with an extinguisher, thus preventing it from spreading to other vehicles.
The Prosecutor announced that the Public Prosecutor’s Office, which has referred the case to the Noumea research unit in support of the Poindimié brigade, is deploying all investigative means to quickly identify and arrest the perpetrators of these acts.
