Somare Regime

Polye blames Pruaitch for Somare regime’s fall

Polye said on record, NA Party Leader Patrick Pruaitch was the main architect behind the fall of the Somare regime on August 02, 2011.

Sir Michael Somare was the parliamentary leader of NA during his two terms of reign as the prime minister.

"When Grand Chief Michael Thomas Somare was hospitalised for heart surgery in Singapore then all the funds parked in several trust accounts were slowly disappearing,” Polye claimed.

"A kitchen cabinet led by Pruaitch was responsible for these missing funds. He, as the Treasurer, was a signatory to all the trust accounts.”
