Pangu Party Leader Sam Basil

Basil questions importation of 280 semi-automatic guns

The Pangu Party Leader made these comments following media reports of confiscation of military grade weapons by PNG Customs because of no declaration.  

Government Chief Secretary Isaac Lupari, who also heads the National Security Advisory Council, said the guns belong to the Police. 

“Lupari's statement doesn't add up, something is wrong here,” Basil stated.

“The non-declaration act alone by the private company breaches the Customs Act, whether a government agency or a private sector, those breaches are serious in nature.

Goilala MP pledges allegiance to Basil

Samb made this known to the people of Bulolo in Morobe Province recently while officiating at the annual district show.

“For good or worse, I will be loyal to Pangu Party and leader Sam Basil as we see each other and most of all, the party to the general elections.

“I want to thank Bulolo district for your support in winning the by-election,” Samb said.

Samb won the by-election following the death of former Member Daniel Mona.

His election into Parliament makes him the second member to join the one member Pangu Party, headed by Basil.
