Papua New Guinea Prime Minsiter Peter O’Neill says he will not surrender to Police saying that the Office of the Prime Minsiter must be respected and not demeaned and questioned with false allegations. He said this after the arrest early in the week of National and Supreme Court judge Sir Bernard Sakora and Attorney General Ano Pala.
“I am not going to allow the office of the Prime Minister to be demeaned, questioned when there are false allegations, where there is no evidence of financial benefit or corruption that has given anybody any financial benefit and set a bad precedent for this country” he said.
Mr O’Neill said a bad precedent could be set where the police could get a warrant “on any anything” and arrest a prime minister. “Of course nobody is above the law but you must have credible concrete evidence that these particular charges will stand in court,” he added.
Meanwhile, the PM said he will not interfere with the work of the Police.
“I don’t want to be seen as interfering with police work, they are simply doing their job as far as I am concerned and it is for the police commissioner to make comments.
