Madang MP calls for probe into yoga contract

The issue of the controversial K3 million paid to an alleged foreign company, ‘Yu Yet PNG Ltd’ was again debated on the floor of Parliament today.

However, today the question of the matter was directed to Minister for Trade, Commerce and Industry, Wera Mori.

The Madang MP, Bryan Kramer, was adamant to get to the bottom of it, and raised the issue again, this time asking the Minister for Trade Commerce and Industry, whether he was aware of such a company with an alleged irregularity in its IPA certificate.

“Can the Minister clarify the operations of such companies as they (may) have broken many IPA laws.”

Minister Mori said he will ensure a thorough investigation is carried out on the company in question, and a report will be made available to parliament.

“I will get to the bottom of this and will deliver a detail report to Kramer and the Parliament as well.”

However, NCD Governor later sought leave of Parliament and did a personal explanation regarding the issue.

He accused Mr Kramer of making statements that were lies, and lacked substantive evidence.

Although he said the Madang MP did not follow Parliament standing orders, he did welcome Minister Mori’s call to get to the bottom of the issue regarding the legality of Yu Yet PNG Limited, and its operations in PNG.
