Minister denies plot to destroy islands for canneries

Maru was responding to a PNG Loop question over the issue of the PMIZ today in Port Moresby.

He said “these are all lies’’ and people needed to know the facts about the project and stop misleading the media.

He said many lies had been going on about the project and those “telling the lies” were trying to destroy the project.

However, Maru said he will not tolerate those lies and will continue with the project.
