PNG PM’s office issue alert

From NBC News and Islands Business

The Prime Minister’s Office has issued an alert to all, to be wary of any correspondence, bearing the purported signature of the Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill.

The alert is to all service providers within the public and private sectors, provincial governments, district administrations, State-owned Enterprises, donor agencies, resident diplomatic corps, banks, law enforcement agencies and the community.

The Prime Minister’s Chief of Staff, Isaac Lupari, says it has come to the attention of the Office of the Prime Minister, that O’Neill’s signature has been forged, and dishonestly used by unauthorised persons, to fraudulently obtain money, goods and other services from State entities and private companies.

He says, this signature scam is widespread and is taking place without the knowledge and authorisation of the Prime Minister.

Relevant agencies of the government have been alerted to trace and stamp out the source or sources of this deception.

This came to light after Opposition Leader, Belden Namah, tabled in Parliament last week, a letter purportedly signed by the Prime Minister, authorizing payment of outstanding bills to Paul Paraka lawyers.

    Whats all these nosense, no one is man enough to admit the truth. We are fond of throwing mud at each other, and do not have the courage to say ‘ ok mi rong pinis’. Can we all own up and admit the truth, otherwise our coffers will go to the dogs. Millions and millions of kina have gone missing, yet people who ‘literally eat these monies’ are free people without any remorse whatsoever that, they have eaten the PNG people’s monies. What are shame?

    Yes, Isaac is the principle culprit – his scheming mind and sticky hands are in the dirty deals concocted over some time that has skimmed millions of kina. He has left a dirty trail and apparent footprint of what collar crime is all about – PNG style. The saddest and most abhorring aspect of this is, previous PMs and the present PM have always known about this BUT have not take any corrective action.
