It’s true. Just listen to Faeroese national news (fun language by the way) on:
 
http://radioradio7.com/radio/Faroe-Islands-Utvarp-Foroya-899-FM.html
 
You’re bound to hear PO sooner or later… 
 
I also spent a week on the Faeroes and learnt some phrases. They definitely pre-occlude.

I’ve seen it written that - In  <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faroese_language> Faroese, pre-occlusion also occurs, as in kallar [ˈkadlaɹ] 'you call, he calls', seinna [ˈsaiːdna] 'latter'.
 
Don’t know if that’s treu or not, as there were no sources, or how that changes things if true.
