Manex Just an Aus Aid PuppetApril 18 2012 at 1:55 PM
Response to Re: Peter "Congenital Liar" Oneill
For the Chief Ombudsman of PNG is currently Chronox Manek. Before becoming Chief Ombudsman, Manek was the recipient of a generous AusAid scholarship that funded his further education in Australia. Prior to this, he was the DPP that prosecuted the Moti case in PNG.
Subsequently, in the Ombudsman’s Report, he (Peter Pena)found that Moti should not even have been in that court as his arrest was unlawful. However, at the time, it did not stop him from yelling “belt the **** out of them,”—them being Moti’s lawyers on hearing that Moti was not in court that morning.
A reasonable person might wonder whether the scholarship proffered to Manek was a reward for the enthusiastic co-operation with the Australian agenda. And why wouldn’t they?
This sort of largesse can’t help but create a sense of obligation that goes nowhere to guaranteeing the independence of the courts and judicial system.
