The executive arm of the party released a statement recently, to say they have issued a formal complaint to restrain Basil from conducting any business under the banner of MA.
MA Party President James Chamilou stated that the party’s executive arm has registered a formal complaint with the National Fraud and Anti-Corruption Directorate to conduct proper investigation for abuse of office and official corruption, conspiracy, false pretense, forgery and altering the party logo.
Early this month, it was announced that Basil would lead the MA Party, bringing over with him eight members of PANGU Pati.
A little over a week ago, the new MA party members opened a new office to prepare for the 2022 election.
However, President Chamilou stated that the party will seek proper legal advice before it can file a lawsuit to claim compensation and damages over alleged stealing of party, including forging and altering the party logo, which is the trademark and identity of the Melanesian Alliance Party.
