Bougainville Public Service

Public servants dismissed over alleged fraud

The last three months has seen the dismissal of several members of the Bougainville Public Service after an audit of the payroll system found members of the ABG’s Department of Personnel Management had been allegedly defrauding the public purse in excess of K360,000.

Furthermore, other officials from the ABG Department of Community Government were implicated in another scandal where K2 million of the Disaster Trust Fund account was allegedly misappropriated, resulted in the sacking of the Secretary of the department.
