Re: This is why Patrick Pruaitch is suspected of being corrupt!!

Remember, supposedly Peter ONeil as leader of the opposition was paid at least K150,000 (I forget the figure now, but it was reported earlier in PNGSCAPE) to shut up and let the ammendments pass. Only a couple MPs in opposition voted against the ammendments, isn't that very odd?
Also, Patrick Prutaich has had constant rumours swirling around him taking payments from the loggers while he was Forest Minister. This is a big temptation for anyone who is put into that position.
Finally, if we are to believe the eyewitness that Sana Somare was yelling and furious at Arthur Somare at some cocktail party in POM for doing underhanded deals between Prutaich and Arthur over some kind of logging issue.
None of this even touches upon Patrick Prutaich's questionable intelligence. He doesn't impress upon meeting him as being a very bright person.
