PNGBlogs Exclusive: Private Security Intelligence Agency created by Peter O'Neill and LR Group to ensure O'Neill remains in power after 2017
Prime Minister Peter O’Neill, his personal adviser Dr Jakob Weiss, Chief Secretary Isaac Lupari and Police Commissioner Gari Baki are involved in a secret plot with LR Group of Israel to create a private intelligence agency and secret paramilitary spy force in Papua Guinea.
The four have already handed over some of the nation’s most secret intelligence information to LR Group, which is headed in Papua New Guinea by Weiss’s son Ilan.
This includes top-secret internal National Intelligence Organization documents and the methodology whereby all PNG security intelligence operations cooperate and coordinate activities and information.
These organisations include NIO, the Defence Force, the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary, Customs, and National Fisheries.
The infiltration of the NIO by LR Group means that all of PNG’s security intelligence networks have been compromised.
Oversight and control of the network is now in the hands of LR Group, reporting directly to the Prime Minister.
PNGBlogs knows that the Prime Minister’s secret plan has been implemented at least in part, but no information is available as to the extent of implementation.
Some LR Group non-commercial operatives are known to be in Papua New Guinea, and others operate out of a safe house owned by Ilan Weiss in the Sydney suburb of Mossman.
PNG Blogs has been told that the Prime Minister’s plan, developed in 2013, was kept secret from NEC and Parliament.
One senior O’Neill Government politician told PNG Blogs: “No self-respecting NEC member or MP would ever agree to such a sell-out of national security.
“This is tantamount to betrayal of the nation.”
The plan is being implemented by an LR Group associate company, Dignia Systems of Israel.
Internal Dignia documents state the plan is for a “multi-year work program of 2013-2017.
“Introduction 2.1. At the request of the Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea we were asked to conduct a survey within Papua New Guinea, as defined by the Prime Minister's document.
“220.127.116.11. A team of experts from DIGNIA stayed in Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea) between the dates of August 19th-30th, 2013, in order to carry out a survey to formulate recommendations to improve work methods and procedures in the National Intelligence Organisation (NIO) … and coordination between all the bodies involved in security in the country.
“2.4. In actuality a comprehensive survey was carried out within the NIO and in addition an examination of intelligence coordination between organisations delineated by the client as those responsible for national security affairs (Security: military, police, NIO and others: Customs Authority, National Fisheries Authority).
“2.5. Coordination of the meetings for the purpose of conducting the survey and the excursions was conducted by the head of the NIO (Mr. Bruno Maika).”
Dignia describes itself as “a global leader and trusted provider of security and defence solutions. Our customers include military and internal security organisations, intelligence and law enforcement agencies worldwide.”
In other words Dignia’s activities are the same as LR Group’s activities in Africa and elsewhere - gun-running, money-laundering, secret private armies, spying for corrupt leaders.
Dignia is Sandline all over again.
After it completed its survey, Dignia prepared a report on NIO and its relationships with other agencies for the Prime Minister, Dr Weiss, PC Baki and Mr Lupari.
The report contains a number of findings and recommendations. The most important are:
2.8. The survey findings indicate an inability of intelligence agencies in the country in general, and in particular the NIO, to perform the basic tasks imposed on an intelligence agency as a result of the critical lack of resources and the very low level of professionalism.
2.11. Implementation of a project based on recommendations presented below will lay a solid foundation for a modern intelligence organisation whose members will possess the training and operational capacity to cope with tasks relating to national security and will provide intelligence research deliverables that will improve the tools which the country’s decision makers possess in order to select the correct alternative on national issues. Sincerely, The DIGNIA Team
Intelligence sources say it is possible that PC Baki’s rogue police are being paid by Dignia or out of funds set aside for the Prime Minister’s secret plan.
