Thursday 30th April

THE Opposition has welcomed the continuing investigation by Taiwanese Government to get to the bottom of the failed Taiwan/PNG
diplomatic dollar racket which defrauded Taiwan of $US29.8 million (K85 million) by two brokers in a bid to establish diplomatic
ties with PNG.
Leader of the Opposition Sir Mekere Morauta said Papua New Guineans wanted to know more about the involvement of the Somare
government in this saga.
Minister for National Planning Paul Tiensten, Public Accounts Committee chairman Timothy Bonga and private lawyer Florian Gubon
have all admitted their involvement.
Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare has admitted to having two meetings in 2006 with former Taiwanese foreign minister James Huang.
He has so far refused to inform the people of the matters discussed at the meeting.
Control Yuan, Taiwans anti- corruption organisation has already charged former Secretary General of the National Security Council,
Chiou I-jen and Mr Huang over this scandal. In 2006, Taiwan Foreign Ministry deposited $US29.8 million in an account with the OCBC
Bank in Singapore and appointed Mr Ching Chi-ju and Wu Shih-tsai, two Singaporean businessmen, as middlemen.
Taiwans foreign ministry ordered investigations after the diplomatic deal failed and began court actions against those involved.
On May 16, 2008, private lawyer Dr Florian Gubon admitted his involvement in the saga. He also revealed of the existence of the
signed Draft Communiqué by the Somare Government, establishing full diplomatic relations with Taiwan. Dr Gubon said his involvement
together with Messrs Tiensten and Bonga had the authority of the Prime Minister.
He alleged among others that:
* Middle Fly MP Roy Biyama was directed by Sir Michael to cut short a private visit to Israel and join Mr Tienstens team in
Singapore to travel to Taiwan;
* US$200,000 was paid to him (Dr Gubons). He subsequently passed $US50,000 to Wu Shih-tsai; and
* Further K50,000 and K15,000 were given to two other Papua New Guinea leaders.
Oppositions attempts to get the Prime Minister and the Parliament to discuss the saga were gagged by the Government through the
Speaker.
On Monday (April 28) the media reported that authorities in Taiwan were finding it difficult to call the Papua New Guinea Guests
who were part of the Taiwan/PNG diplomatic scandal.

Yes, the people listed in the article are definitely involved. What i can't figure out is how the poster of this article somehow thinks that the article is giving proof that Somare has been getting some of this money into his personal pocket. That could well be but there is absolutely nothing in this article that says it or gives evidence that the poster's little theory is true.

Another Somare Arse Licker who posted on the other sites:'We aren't quite as stupid as NGRA man thinks"

.. And of course this site surfers and readers arent fooled by this arselickers view that there is no evidence.

The facts speak for themselves.

Why is the information suppressed? Somare and his cronies are in power and are in control.

Why wasn't the government cooperating with the Taiwanese government? Somare and his cronies have now got the money and will not cooperate. Now Somare and his cronies stand to make millions in signing over the gas deals to supply china... Taiwan is being ignored. The gas landowners should be very cautious dealing with both the developer and the government.

Somare and his cronies will threaten the Post Courier and deny, they are quite welcome to take the newspaper to courts... that will only open up their intricate network of corruption more and more, a real can of worms... So they will only kick up a tantrum until the dust settles.

Our ombudsmen unfortunately is an empty tin can. Alot of noise with nothing inside. Many of the ombudsmen can be seen around PoM clubs being feted by Somare's goons.

Why are there doubters surfing this site... they have been fkd by the Somare govt and have been licking his arse. That... PNGeans are not fooled.

SO PAPUA NEW GUINEANS BE WARY OF SOMARE ARSE LICKERS ON PNGWEBSCAPE !!!
