    I just want to thank the owners of this web site for making the report available. They have done something very significant to help fight corurption and suppression of the truth. Whistleblowers and leakers thrughout the world have been responsible for sometimes singlehandedly holding governments and public officials accontable to the people, while also ensuring that private citizens are not allowed to use legal maneuvers to deviously and unethically cover up the truth. A big salute to pngexposed. Please continue to expose the truth.

    The Finance Inquiry; Patience in Catching the Crooked Muruks

    The Muruk is a powerful creature. It can reach two meters in its prime and has the ability to travel long distances. Unable to fly because of its body weight, this animal has adapted well. With its powerful claws, and muscular hinds, it defends well and is effective in overpowering preys. Even in the presence of a hunting party, it can easily over power, arrows, buckshots it indeed is a powerful animal. However, like all animals, it has its vulnerabilities and for the cassowary, it is the prism above its head, its brain. Meticulous planning, surveillance must be carried out before hinting it. The conventional way many tribes in PNG catch them is by chasing a herd into dense scrubs by burning the forests. There they will force the cassowary to adapt to this environment. With the fear of losing its balance, the cassowary is left with little option but hide. In this state, the hunt is virtually over as the big bird is fully exposed. However, the fact that its alive, extreme caution is taken and usually from afar, the final blow is made.

    The Finance Commission of Inquiry Report is burning through the cyber forest and has taken the crooked muruks into the dense scrubs to hide. Maurice Sheehan has indeed confirmed the rumors of siphoning resources through institutional corruption at the Finance Department is very real. From the inflammatory deed settlements to ridiculous retainer contracts, the report is clear; a bunch of folks simply stole a whole heap of money.

    So as we sharpen our spears and walk closer to catch these crooked muruks, we have to respect its ability to strike first and therefore, careful planning must prevail. The gag orders will be coming, the defamation suits are been prepared and the favorite for every criminal cut the paper trail and find ways of killing the hounds.

    But this is the great news Papua New Guinea, they are ssoo busted.. You see, Sheehan’s team has the paper trail, that’s right sufficient evidence to throw them in jail. Evidence cited in the report indicated fraud, false pretence and yes, misappropriation. All are indictments and as such the Police Commissioner, Chief Ombudsman (OC) and the Public Prosecutor (PP) have the basis to move into enforcement mode.

    Usually, the muruk will apply a gag order but they have two main limitations. First, is time and secondly its specificity. The latter is of particular interest. If they want to stop its publication, distribution and so forth, it may do so but the evidence derived from the report cannot be stopped. Therefore, it is essential that the Police Commissioner commences a clandestine operation to attain the evidence and commence the investigations.

    The following needs to take place. The Police Commissioner needs to instruct the Fraud Squad to attain all evidence collected from the Inquiry to commence building indictments to those implicated. The beauty is, they virtually don’t have to do anything as the evidence compiled is catalogue and clearly cited in the report. These investigative officers than need to liaise with the OC and the PP so as to identify the appropriate charge. Once this is ascertained, the PP can than issue a Nollie Proseque to issue indictments. With the evidence already present, the objective is for the police to immediately charge them.

    As for those leaders, they should be killed in a Leadership Tribunal first. This is because the leadership tribunal will remove them as leaders and this will allow, in theory, for them not to hold any leadership position. Although one has to be mindful of the Diro case. Nonetheless, this should proceed and thereafter, the PP should issue a Nollie on the leader for further prosecution.

    In a similar approach, all lawyers citied in the report should be referred to the Lawyers Statutory Committee for immediate hearing. This committee within the PNG Law Society is responsible for penalizing lawyers of misconduct. After this process has been exhausted, the PP should issue a Nollie as well.

    Several factors are crucial. First, the Fraud Squad needs to do this in a clandestine manner. No public announcements, no statements as this will attract challenges. You see, unlike previous inquiries, the evidence is not prima facie but substantive. Expert witnesses in the fields of forensic accounting, cyber crime eperts and conventional investigators have done an exceptional job in compiling and cataloguing the evidence. The Report makes explicit reference to their existence. The second factor is the PP and his top Prosecutor to ensure the evidence is tight. From the looks of things they are. So when the Nollie is issued, charges occur simultaneously. By pegging an indictment and charged taken, the rest is mere procedure. However for many of them, their lawyers will probably tell them to enter verdict of guilty as this will give them some wiggle room for a plea bargain and this may mean a lesser conviction (reduced charge e.g. misappropriation, indictment, to false pretence summery) and sentencing (reduced time). The public should monitor this exercise as the crooks may cut deals to expose other deals.

    As we go into the kill zone to catch this beast, spare a thought for the great men and women who are fighting the fight. Many have endured assassination attempts, rape, marital problems, and whispered damage of their personal property. In spite of these travesties, they plotted on to complete the inquiry. May your passion for righteousness be endearing for generations to come. And may God rise up leaders never to walk in the path of these crooked muruks.

    The issue of corruption in any form is now becoming a culture. People of all walks of live now accept corruption as a norm. it is a norm lterally because no one wants to talk about it or report individuals to authorities. if it is reported, the report is dysfunctional as it evaporates withinn the authority who are vested with prosecution. so there is a vicious cycle in ensuring that corruption survives and trives. no amount of words nor deeds will reduce or stop this thing called corruption until something drastics happens. the corruption is a monster! It is now above every laws that govern this nation. i have every reason to believe that this monster will rule every fabric of our society. References made in COI and other media reports are only a tip of an icebag. they are emerging because of political witch hunt, and what about the likes of NA members surrendering to the Government of PM O’Neil? Sir Mekere knows very well as he was inducted into the Government system as early as Pre – Independence and Post Independence until now and commented that corruption in PNG is systematic and endemic. Systematic because it is highly organised by those who are in authority in various capacity to corruptly enrich themselves and endemic becaUSE IT IS SPREADING LIKE WILD FIRE THAT IS SPREDING LIKE WILD FIRE

    Now..we are facing unstable economy, corruption exceeds at its limit, public entity are patronized by few political bureaucrats and are utterly converted to privet corporation. how did the government shifted from NA to O’nil? so-called opposition leader is indeed a crooked head… I guess a transaction of six zero digits text message exchange from Nama and O’nil to the speaker to declared O’nil as PM and Nama the deputy. no big deal.. the same happens to Paraka.. all signatory where themselves, ( O’nil, Marape, Don) to unlock the key. Don wouldn’t have reveal the secret if he still hookup with the team. Nama sitting on his own excrete,however barking a lot. The question is– who can we trust? who is the real leader? O’nil has a record of stealing some million when working with the Bank of Papua New Guinea and got save by a private lawyer Mr. Stanley Leri. Nama appeared on papers some time squandering huge amount of public funds and alleged to sexual assault at a casino in Sydney, yet held liable for landowners dividend. A “rubber band law” in PNG hasn’t got the prerogative decision to screw those who infringe its by-laws. A democratic independent state is prone to became a dictatorship. not long we will have another: Josef Stalin, Hitler, Benito Musolani, and General Franko rule our young nation. remember- everything falls and rise through leadership. it’s puzzled to distinguish a country where corruption become an irrefutable ingredients in every sectors. PNG is obviously prone to face the adverse consequences through Leadership.
