Government to act on a web of corruption in Lae

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The unpublished report exposes a web of corruption stretching across   the departments of finance, Works and the Central Supply and tenders board.

Among other irregularities, the investigation found that   officers within the finance department made commitments of over 50 million kina to pay a contractor even before a supplementary budget was handed down by parliament.

Meanwhile, NME international could not respond to our queries regarding Lae Roads project.

Their Port Moresby office said the Chief Executive officer, is currently on leave in Australia.
