Ruling on PANGU executives next month

The Waigani Committal Court will make its ruling on the sufficiency of evidence next month in relation to a case against two PANGU party executives relating to dishonest application of funds.

Party president Patrick Pundao and General Secretary of the Party, Morris Tovebae, are in court over allegations they dishonestly applied K50,000, monies belonging to the party.

The money they allegedly misused is said to be nomination fees for candidates contesting the 2017 National General Election under the party's banner.

Magistrate Mekeo Gauli heard submissions from their lawyer, and the police prosecution and will give a ruling on June 12.

The party executives remain in bail.
