WHO IS REALLY RUNNING OUR COUNTRY?

Image
by BRYAN KRAMMER
I understand there are a number of series of articles that I have yet to complete unfortunately recent events have given me reason to write about a more pressing issue that is not only of national interest but national security.
The issues I'm about to write about will be the most compelling, disturbing and complex of all the articles I have written about so far. A week ago I ran into a friend who asked me a rather confronting question, given that all my articles expose high-level corruption what do I do to address the security risks that come with it. The friend was a foreign national who came from a region of the world where people who report on similar issues are typically assassinated in an effort to silence them. My response was I do nothing, because it is inevitable. Once you accept the fact you will mostly certainly be killed for a cause you believe in then there is no point wasting time worrying about it. The only issue for me is how much I can achieve befo…

STATE SOLICITOR’S FUNCTIONS USURPED BY TWIVEY LAWYERS

Image
by TREASURY INSIDER

The State Solicitor performs a key role in the country. One of those functions is to clear State contracts for payment etc. The Attorney General can outsource some of the functions of the State Solicitor, such as providing advice on State negotiations etc but not the function of clearing contracts for payment by Finance and Treasury Department.  There is a good reason for it –for check and balances. When the State Solicitor clears the contractual debt, it legitimizes the transaction on behalf of the State hence an entity other than the State Solicitor cannot legitimately replace that function.
Sources within the Department of Treasury have advised that the controversial law firm –Twivey Lawyers – had been contracted by the sleazy Attorney General to usurp the powers of the State Solicitor and perform the non-delegable function of clearing contracts before Department of Treasury could pay. The request to engage the services of Twivey Lawyers came from none other th…

In news just received from the Court House, Prime Minister Peter O'Neill's legal warrior, Tiffany Twivey herself got committed today by the District Court to stand trial in the National Court. Mr Twivey who employed all manner of legal techniques to protect and prevent the arrest of her high profile clients including Peter O'Neill and Daire Vele had got herself entangled in the justice drag-net.

Ms Twivey was charged with perverting the course of justice last year and today, the District Court found that she has a case to answer.

This case relates to her trying to save her boy-friend Daire Vele.

Details will be out soon.

2017 BUDGET BLUES - K40 MILLION SLUSH FUND ALLOCATED FOR PM's PERSONAL USE

Image
by PNGBLOGS

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill’s greed and corruption is on show again in the 2017 Budget, with K40 million allocated for his personal use.

The slush fund is a new allocation, under the Treasury and Finance Miscellaneous category, entitled Prime Minister’s Commitments. Also in this category is K3 million for “PM’s Official Staff Determination Payouts”.

Treasury and Finance Miscellaneous can be viewed on Page 187 of Volume 2a, 2017 Budget Estimates of Revenue and Expenditure for National Government Departments http://www.treasury.gov.pg/html/national_budget/files/2017/Vol2a-Revenue%20and%20Expenditure%20National%20Govt%20Depts.pdf

No details of the new slush fund have been given. No reference was made to it in the Treasurer’s speech. No details are available of who or what the K40 million is to be spent on. There is no evidence of any acquittal requirements.

This is a slush fund pure and simple and the Prime Minister and his Treasurer are trying to keep it secret.

Treasury an…

WHY STUDENTS ARE RIGHT NOT TO TRUST THE MEDIA - THE POST-COURIER CORRUPTION EXAMPLE, OTHER MEDIA, AND THE PM’S FLOOZIE DOOZIES AND SPIN-KINGS.

University students across the nation are right not to trust the mainstream media (although that does not mean that banning certain sections is justifiable, or beneficial to their cause).
Outlets like the Post-Courier, the National and EMTV are compromised from top to bottom by their own corruption and by fear of the O’Neill Regime’s standover tactics.
Some of their journalists are no better than the media prostitutes (the FLOOZIE DOOZIES) paid by Peter O’Neill to spread his word on social media.
My example will be the Post-Courier, the nation’s oldest surviving daily newspaper and for decades a paragon of media excellence, along with the NBC.
Today it is a shadow of its former self, its reputation in tatters and its circulation declining.
There are two aspects to the Post’s corruption - senior management interference in editorial on behalf of the O’Neill Regime, and j…

PETER O’NEIL AND GARI BAKI COMBINED TO WRITE A NEW CHAPTER IN THE BRIEF POLITICAL HISTORY OF PNG.

Image
byLEKEM LAKI
Papua New Guinea gained independence from the neo-colonial Australian administration in September 16, 1975. Since then, we have had seven Prime Ministers in the likes of Sir Michael Somare, Sir Julius Chan, Sir Rabbi Namaliu, Paias Wingti, Late Bill Skate, Sir Mekere Morauta and the controversial incumbent Peter O’Neil.

Under the leadership of previous Prime Ministers, country enjoyed tranquility with transition of changeover of leadership (PM) through political manoeuvre but peacefully and done and dusted in the spirit of the constitution. Never had one time experienced a political coup except the incumbent wrestled and forcefully taken over a legitimate government that of Michael Somare. It is telling the tenacity of the aggression to grip on to power by becoming untouchable by laws of the land. He has written a new chapter in the brief political history of PNG and is typical of a thief and remember this, a thief comes to steal, destroy and kill.

Never had one time, we …

“NOT ALL OF US ARE AS BLIND AS BAKI”

by JOHN STEWARD

In a remarkable turn of events, and right under the watchful eyes of all thinking Papua New Guineans, the Police Commissioner eliminates almost all potential risks at the National Fraud and Anti-Corruption Directorate, by suspending the Director Matthew Damaru, his Deputy Timothy Gitua, another senior office Joel Simitab and other officers who may have been seen solidly supporting their bosses to pursue the arrest of Prime Minister O’Neill in relation to Paul Paraka Lawyers fraudulent payments.

Commissioner Baki, in a lengthy media statement attempts to justify his “weekend” actions but not many will be convinced in light of the chain of events leading up to Baki’s decisions. I have gone through the various events leading up to the actions of Baki and here is what I have compiled. (All these events are publicly reported in various media forums if you have been following),

On the 5th of April 2016, the Supreme Court unanimously dismissed James Marape’s appeal to the Supre…

IS TIFFANY TWIVEY JUST ANOTHER LAWYER ARRESTED FOR DOING HER LAWYERING JOB?

Image
by JOHN STEWARD

At the very least, she unashamedly tried to paint that picture on the eve of her arrest. But what is really the case against Twivey? Off Course, Fraud Squad Officers cannot arrest a lawyer for “merely acting on her client’s instructions”. Was she in this case? You bet!

Information available in the public domain reveal that when news broke out that a Warrant of Arrest was out for the arrest of Daire Vele, Tiffany wrote to Director of Fraud Squad and advised that her client (Vele) was out of the country and would be making himself available for question as soon as he returned. She deliberately diverted the attention of the Fraud Squad Officers to ensure that her client was not arrested whilst she worked on Court documents to set aside the warrant.

My inquiries with well-placed sources reveal that Tiffany acted improperly and criminally when she filed an application to set aside a warrant of arrest issued by the District Court against Daire Vele, Secretary for Treasury. I…
