Public Prosecutor To Peruse PM’s Misconduct Allegations

Yesterday, Member for Ialibu-Pangia and Prime Minister of PNG, Peter O&rsquO’Neill, was referred to the public prosecutor by the Ombudsman Commission for misleading allegations in an EM TV statement, sacking Don Polye as treasurer on the grounds of causing government instability and failing to comply with proper procedures in the K3 billion Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) loan.

Allegations regarding the former Minister for Treasury refer to the reason of his sacking, which the Prime Minister had attributed to creating instability in government when in fact, Mr Polye’s resignation coincided with his refusal to comply with and sign the UBS loan deal.

In a letter this afternoon, public prosecutor Pondros Kaluwin said he would be perusing the file to independently determine whether there is sufficient, credible and cogent evidence to request the chief justice to appoint an appropriate leadership tribunal to enquire into the Prime Minister’s allegations of misconduct in office.
