Former MP to be arrested. Who is it?

Fraud of K1m alleged...

By MOHAMMAD BASHIR

One of the interview cubicles at the Police Fraud squad office at Konedobu temporarily turned into an emergency room last Friday.
A doctor was called in to do emergency checks on a former politician who became ill when interviewed and was about to be arrested in connection with a K1
million fraud case. On the doctors order, the suspect, a former state minister, was released but ordered to return yesterday to be formally arrested and
charged. When the suspect returned yesterday, he went straight to the office of the Deputy Police Commission Operations Raphael Huaafolo and not to the
Fraud Squad as agreed. Acting Fraud Squad director Timothy Gitua was summoned by Mr Huaafolo to explain the situation and the parties agreed that the
suspect would come in today to be arrested. Chief Inspector Gitua, while acknowledging what happened yesterday, confirmed that the suspect had been diagnosed
by the doctor for an anxiety attack and high blood pressure. Yesterdays events further delayed any action being taken with the former MP (named) from the
Southern Highlands. Police allege that the Finance Department was defrauded of more than K1 million from five different fraudulent payments.
Detectives who had just commenced the interview were baffled when the suspect showed signs of illness in front of them and asked for a doctor immediately.
Police who conducted the investigations several months ago said the payments initially stemmed from a district court order by Magistrate Rakatani Mataio on
October 9, 1997. In that case, Mr Mataio ordered the return of items including a pump action gun allegedly confiscated by police from the former MP.
On November the same year, the same magistrate signed and issued a certificate of judgment for the sum of K105,000 for the alleged confiscated items which
were not yet returned as earlier ordered. The order was challenged by Posman Kua and Aisi Lawyers but was dropped due to problems under originating summons
118 of 1999.

Who could that former MP be? Is it Michael Nali, the thief? He is a con artist and can do anything to escape the justice system. People like that bend over backwards to steal and plunder the resources of the people of PNG.

Yeah, they bend over backwards to steal our resources and the reason why they usually get away with it is because people like you knew for years about what a crook Michael Nali was, and did very little in terms of effective action to spread the word of his corruption.

Police after former MP for fraud

By MOHAMMAD BASHIR

The Police Fraud Squad will hunt down the former state minister alleged to have defrauded the Finance Department of over K1 million today.
Deputy Police Commissioner, Operations Raphael Huafolo has given the go ahead for detectives to apprehend and arrest him.
Initial attempts to arrest were deferred when the suspect trembled in the interview room and a doctor diagnosed him with an anxiety attack.
The second time he returned, he went to Mr Huafolo and allegedly threatened to sue police. A long delay occurred as the latter wanted a brief on the background of the case.
Police investigations revealed the payment in five separate instalments stemmed from a district court order by Magistrate Rakatani Mataio on October 9 1997.
In that order, Mr Mataio ordered the return of items including a pump action gun allegedly confiscated from the MP.
On November 4 the same year, the same magistrate signed and issued a certificate of judgment for the sum of K105,000 for the alleged confiscated items which were not returned as
earlier ordered.
The order was challenged by Posman Kua and Aisi Lawyers but was dropped due to technicalities under originating summons 118 of 1999.
The MP then sought to re-enforce the certificate of judgment and issued contempt proceedings against the Attorney General and the Secretary for Finance.
A sum of K127,989.11 was paid then into the registrars trust account and these monies were allegedly taken out by the MP despite a garnishee order.
The fraud squad is questioning whether the monies paid into the registrars trust account were in satisfaction of the deed of release or the allegedly technical and legally defective order
and certificate of judgment signed by the magistrate.
