Ministers Duma and Palo visit Hagan with Indonesian fugitive

October 16, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Eyewitness account from Facebook

International Indonesian fugitive Joko Chaundra Soegerto clandestine arrival in Mount Hagen last weekend (Saturday) was witnessed by a few.

I just drove past the golf course at the back of Mount Hagen Airport and saw a white green stripe private jet parking there.

I quickly drove into the terminal area of the airport to check who it was and the people advised me that it was our good Minister William Duma with an Iraqi Oil tycoon. The people at Mount Hagen Airport were caught with surprise.

I waited and saw an Asian man with Hon William Duma and Hon Ano Pala getting onto the jet. It didn’t dawn on me until I checked PNG Exposed blog which shows the same picture.

Let alone the controversy surrounding the granting of citizenship to this fugitive, he is into many deals including the controversial rice project in the Central Province which is expected to be approved by the NEC some time this week.

I’m also wondering where the plane came from to land in Hagen. If it was from an overseas port, Mount Hagen Airport is not the port of entry and wondering why it landed there before heading off to Port Moresby.

    This is ridiculous, when the current government is talking about fighting corruption at all levels, yet on the contrary, you see and hear of senior Govt Ministers engaged in corrupted activities. Are they really serious about their commitment, or is it for the small boys while the big guns do whatever they can lay their hands to enhance their bank accounts? Now PM and your Ministers, the whole country is behind your back, however if such issues continue to occur, than it only indicates to us that, you maybe speaking one thing while your ministers do the opposite. BEWARE PM

    Dont you think they would be importing Guns into the highlands of PNG and then those guns will find their way into Lae and other Provinces of PNG..God help us,we will end up like the other African country where gun has turned that country upside down inside out.

    The scenario of the governments initiative in fighting corruption in all aspects is more like Taskforce Sweep team emptying the tank whilst our corrupt leaders with their cohorts still refilling the tank with corruptions. This is no where near end. By the way, who is authorising the so called ministers with this fugitive to travel abroad to conduct their corrupt deals. The top government ministers and the prime minister know the events very well. Are we securing development and project fundings through bribery from such lucrative fugitives who are in return rewarded with PNG Citizenship to shut us up. NO wonder we do not progress.

    The plane would have jetted into Port Moresby first? Or, it would have gotten executive clearance to fly to Hagen and land there. Joko has to check his investments, consider new ones and it is all part and parcel of how commerce and deals are being cut and done in an era where time is an asset in today’s competitive world. Unless Joko is arraigned and maligned in jail, he is a free man in a country whose Constitution’s underlines the protection of individual rights . The PNG Govt from the top down know this. Wedafakawi PNG? The difference between right and wrong have become very blurred. Don’t complain, we’ve just had our elections, if you aren’t happy wait to make another choice in 2017!

    Now Interoil has propossed to shell off it’s 50% to PNG and the LOs on the next LNG. No wonder Duma is on board the fugitive, who will be the pappet master. Or could we say the 6 billion loan from China with some percetage will diverted for this.
