Planning Minister Charles Abel says the government will act on the recommendations of an investigation into the Lae Roads Rehabilitation Project that calls for disciplinary action against senior government officers.

The unpublished report exposes a web of corruption stretching across   the departments of finance, Works and the Central Supply and tenders board.
