PM slams Kramer’s behaviour

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has called on the new Member for Madang, Bryan Kramer, to learn to behave in the manner expected by his constituents, and not engage in slanderous and illegal behavior.

“The ongoing commentary by the Member for Madang, publishing unsubstantiated conversations with other Members of Parliament is disrespectful, misleading and actionable in court,” the Prime Minister said in a statement today.

“Personal attacks and insults against leaders, with claimed one-sided private conversations, are bandied about on social media.

“These are just shallow social media outbursts that only serve personal politics, and lack any policy platform.”

The Prime Minister is further calling on relevant authorities to look into his behaviour.

“As these comments are also slanderous, it is appropriate that the Ombudsman Commission look into the Member’s conduct.

“NICTA, as the agency tasked with dealing with cybercrimes and the misuse of telecommunications services, must be proactive in dealing with these issues and undertake their own investigations.

“This behaviour is unbecoming and bizarre, particularly for the new member who is yet to prove his worth in the Parliament.”
