Corruption Papua New Guinea, Investigation Continuing

PNG government’s law and order are under reconstruction after years of corruptions. The government has implemented new measures in order to cut down wrong doings of parliament members.

The clock-in and clock-out system has been installed to ensure correctness of members sitting day entitlement which claimed to be misused prior to the unveiling of the anti-corruption measures led by Peter O’Neil.

Mr O’Neil’s government has warned ministries, enterprises and the people about fraudsters claiming to represent Mr O’Neil in a memorandum to heads of government departments, statutory bodies and state-owned enterprises.

This intentional perversion of truth for the purpose of obtaining some valuable things from others need to take an extra care and make sure to affirm those claim from the prime minister’s office.

“The office of the prime minister will not be used by unscrupulous people to forge the prime minister’s signature or use his name with the intention to defraud or steal from the state,” said the memorandum, quoted by The National newspaper.

“Letters purportedly signed by the prime minister authorising payments from various budgeted programmes and activities are being brought to your departments and organisations. You are to seek clarification from the office of the prime minister or the office of the chief secretary before attending to such matters.”

Adding by the new speaker of the parliament, he said, “At this time, parliament is not functioning. It is completely dysfunctional. There are people holding very responsible positions in parliament who are not qualified at all.”

The anti-corruption task force helped bringing politicians and business leaders to face justice.

The damage done by those criminals to UN premises will not happen to intimidate and discourage us, said the task force chairman.
