North Fly

Basil’s move, a betrayal of trust: North Fly MP

Donald has described their sudden departure from the Alliance Team in the Opposition, as an ‘act of betrayal’ and one that is driven by ‘fear and uncertainty’.

But, he says, that doesn’t mean individual MPs in the Opposition like himself will give in easily to Government but will still remain with the Alliance Team in the Opposition because it is not the only right thing to do but it is also to do with the wishes of his people.

Trial date moved for Kiunga landowner

David Kaya and his lawyer appeared before the Waigani National Court, where his bail conditions were varied, allowing him to fly to Kiunga where his trial will be held.

Kaya and his co-accused, who is also his lawyer, Philip Kamen, will stand trial next Monday before acting Judge Danajo Koeget.

Despite the matter being prosecuted in Port Moresby during the Committal Court stage, it will be transferred to the Western Province for trial because most of the witnesses are based there.
