The Alliance to file Supreme Court reference

Member for Madang, Bryan Kramer, says he has instructed the party’s counsel, Nemo Yalo, to file a Supreme Court reference that will challenge the 18 month grace period.

He is of the view that the 18 month grace period undermines democracy.

“We are also going to be filing a constitutional reference in relation to the disbursements of DSIP funds, seeking a Supreme Court reference on constitutional questions as to the distribution of the DSIP funds that favour members of government and prejudice members of the opposition,” he said.

Kramer shouted down by Government MPs

His query concerns an alleged fraud case between former Madang MP Nixon Duban and Prime Minister Peter O’Neill.

Kramer was trying to direct the question to the Police Minister Jelta Wong.

He was the first MP to stand after the Speaker opened the floor for a 45-minute Question Without Notice. 

Initially, Kramer had told Parliament that he had evidence of PM O’Neill authorising a payment requested by Duban, which had been found illegal by the courts.
