Member for Lae, Loujaya Kouza, says he is now living at another hotel while doing locum rounds at the cancer facility at Angau Memorial Hospital.
Kouza brought this to the attention of Parliament today seeking the health minister’s response on Dr Niblett’s payments.
The payments, she said, are from an order made by the court to the department to pay the doctor.
Minister Michael Malabag said Dr Niblett’s contract with the department expired in February 2016. However, it was extended for another three months to May of that same year.
