Criminals should be locked away – Gulf MP

Kerema Open member Richard Mendani says he is not surprised by the conduct of the Gulf politician who allegedly tried to bribe a judge last week at the Water front café in Port Moresby.

He is calling on the media to continue exposing such behavior by members of parliament.

Mendani says such behavior reflects on the lack of development in Gulf Province.

Criminals should be locked away behind bars so they do not continue doing this, he told LOOP News.

Last week Thursday a National court judge was sitting at the water front café when young man walked in and dumped several bundles of K100 banknotes in his lap, under the table.

The judge, who does not want to be named, told Loop PNG that he was astonished at what had happened and swept the money on to the floor.

A Loop reader who was at the café at the time the incident took place say the Gulf Leader is in fact the Governor Haivila Kavo.

LOOP News was given four different numbers to contact Kavo however each attempt was unsuccessful.

LOOP News will continue following this story.
