Namah Criticizes Sweep Team for Clearing PM

Opposition Leader, Belden Namah, today criticized the Task Force Sweep team for clearing Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, on allegations of fraud.

He condemned the findings of the Sweep team saying it is not a constituted authority to clear the Prime Minister.


Namah said the court and the police are the only constituted authorities to dwell on the evidence.


However, the Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has warned Namah against his constant attack.


In their findings into the alleged involvement of the Prime Minister, Finance Minister, James Marape and Treasurer, Don Polye, in the improper payment made to Paraka lawyers, the PM was cleared.


 The findings resulted in the arrest of former Finance Secretary, Steven Gibson.


In a media conference this afternoon, accompanied by senior lawyers, Alois Jerewai and Peter Doingi, the Opposition Leader raised questions about the findings of the investigation.


In a statement the Prime Minister warned the Opposition Leader against his constant attack on lawful and due process.


Mr. O’Neill said the findings of the Sweep team are a demonstration of them performing their duties.


The PM cautioned that such an act may be destructive to the nation.


He says there cannot be any arrest now, with the investigation establishing that the letter alleged to be signed by the PM was forged.
