Yama calls for implementation of COI

Madang Governor Peter Yama is calling on the Government to pull up previous Commission of Inquiries and start implementing the recommendations.

Governor Yama emphasised this in a recent press conference in Port Moresby.

The Madang Governor said the Government has spent a lot of money on inquiries but nothing has been forthcoming in terms of the implementation of recommendations.

He said high profile judges, both in PNG and overseas, were involved in carrying out these inquiries but no one has been reprimanded yet.

Governor Yama further said the Government must attend to previous inquiries first and start arresting those implicated, rather than arresting simple people stealing a can of tinned fish.

He said he will raise the question to the Speaker of Parliament, Job Pomat, and Leader of Government Business, James Marape, in the next session of Parliament.
