Chuave MP

Disciplinary officers’ conducts need attention: Mori

Chuave MP, Wera Mori said the conduct of PNGDF personnel who physically abused NCD Police boss Ben Turi on New Year’s Eve needs urgent attention.     

“PNGDF will be working alongside Police to provide security for the upcoming elections,” Mori said.   

He said, with many reports of public been abused by PNGDF and Police Personnel, the government can look at forming a paramilitary, where both institutions will come under one command. 

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill responded to the question because Defence Minister Fabian Pok was absent from today’s session.

Chuave MP Challenge warrants in court

His lawyer, Adam Ninkama moved an application before the Committal Court, asking the court to quash that search warrant as well as a warrant for his arrest that was obtained from the District Court last year.

He told Magistrate Cosmas Bidar that the search warrant date July 3, 2015 is defective as it was not obtained in the right manner.

This warrant was used by police to search the Chuave Treasury office and obtain files which were used in the investigation against Mori which led to his arrest on official corruption charges.
