Investigation into NHC properties not completed

The investigation into the eviction of Papua New Guinea families from government owned houses is yet to be completed.

“There is an official internal investigation but I have not received a report as yet, when received will table in Parliament,” Prime Minister Peter O’Neill said.

He was responding to questions from Goroka MP Bire Kimisopa in Parliament during Question Time today.  

Kimisopa asked if the Investigation into National Housing Corporation promised by the prime minister in 2016 had been completed.

In the August 2016 Parliament sitting, Prime Minister O’Neill promised an investigation after the issue was raised by Kimisopa of the controversial evictions of residents in NHC houses in Goroka.
