Lange ignores instructions to fight corruption in Madang

Madang Administrator Bernard Lange and his Treasurer have ignored instructions from the Department of Finance in Port Moresby to clean up the endemic corruption in their offices.

We have already revealed the Chair of the Madang Provincial Audit Committee has resigned over the lack of action on corruption and provided examples of the type of corruption that plagues the Province. In response a number of sources have come forward with further information.

The letters below show the Department of Finance in Port Moresby has had to write to both Lange and Treasurer Soten Uriah requiring they attend Provincial Audit Committee meetings set up to tackle instances of corruption. Sources have further confirmed that although both men have managed to attend at least one  meeting of the Audit Committee since the letters were received they have failed to provide the Committee with the documentation and other information it has requested or to ensure other Divisional Heads attend and cooperate. This deprives the Committee of the information it requests and the authority required to fulfill its functions.

    I pray no matter how how they take may our God cause things to help in the favor of those who are trying to do what is right and proper in the eyes of all and if the person(s) in questions are not complying then I pray all will come tumbling down soon.If this person(s) in question is trying to evade, his evil will come crushing down on him or them soon,I pray.

    Its happening everywhere in this country, those two people are trying to evade and hide away from their evil deeds. They need to be suspended / sacked immediately and replaced so that investigations can reveal what they were really up to. It smells very fisher for a Provincial Administrator and a Provincial Treasurer not carrying out a lawful instruction from the Finance Secretary.
