Your question or comment was about Australia Network News and Current Affairs

Dear John Middleton.

I am writing to you from Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea about a story that will make your blood boil. Please air this in your Asia Pacific Focus program.

This is about Corruption in Papua New Guinea. White Collar Corruption at its best.

Massive funds up to the tune of K70 Million (A$35 Million) have been misused by the Local MP for Komo Margarima Electorate, the very electorate hosting the Multi Billion Kina PNG LNG Project.

Below is the detailed evidence of the facts before had. All hard copies of the bank statements are available for further clarification. We the simple people want this story to be published so that this filth can be uncovered and the perpetrators of this misuse be prosecuted.

Please contact me directly on the above contacts for further information.

Below is the statement that has been sent to the Ombudsman Commission and other anti corruption alliance groups in PNG.

************************************************
There is a clear misuse of public funds which is indicated clearly on the
Bank records (attached) of the Komo Margarima District Account. Millions of Kina
from the district account has been diverted into the Acting District Managers
personal account for personal use, which we believe is done in consultation or with
the knowledge of the local Member of Parliament. The Acting District Manager
should be terminated, arrested and locked behind bars for an investigation to begin.

We write to your office expressing the concern of the huge misappropriation which
occured in the Komo Margarima funds in a short span of time, 2007 2010. This
Acting District Administrator for Komo Margarima District has terribly mismanaged
the district funds. He illegally did direct fund transfers, made huge withdrawals over
the counter under his own name, converting huge amounts of money into bank
Cheques to direct transfers to PNG Construction Ltd, a company purportedly owned
by the local member of Parliament and many others he and the local MP has
personal interests.

We know the National Anti-Corruption Alliance will help fight this corruption in the
use of Komo Margarima funds so that normalcy will return and that is why we make
this presentation to your office.

It is therefore our hope and wish that this officer is brought before the law and that
we want investigations carried out sooner the better and the member for Komo
Margarima should be included in this investigation. We further wish to request
that the following Accounts to be frozen as you begin your investigation:-

1000585280-District Support and Improvement Program Account(Trust Account) ;
1000908301- Tumbi Yaris Personal Account ;
1000874712- PNG Construction Ltd Account ;
1000931773- District Treasury and Operating Account and
any other related accounts that may involve Komo Margarima funds.

Present to you, but we wish you please to read our brief which will then lead you to
those Bank Statements.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
a. The accumulative figure of the little amount being drawn from his personal Account day by day is nearly K 26,000.00. Note that the officer had been living on peoples monies while being suspended from the public services payroll.

b. I refer you to the Gross Misuse which contains in the four (4) pages Bank Statements attached herein. You find Bank Cheques were made to PNG Construction Ltd by Tumbi Yari from his personal Account and two (2) of the District Accounts. Why from his personal account?

c. You also find payments made by PNG Construction Ltd made to Mr Yaris personal account. What are they for, bribery?

d. You also find various other deposits made by unknown people into his personal account, are they bribery?


Please, investigate the direct Bank Cheques transfers into PNG Construction Ltd Account- 1000874712. If the PNG Construction Ltd was engaged for projects, cheques would not have been drawn in big amounts. Also direct transfers of funds are totally not allowed by Finance Management Act. There are no evidences of Tenders Board Approval of a certain project which would be executed by PNG Construction Ltd nor the JDP and BPC meeting being held to have the direct transfers of public funds. Where and when the PNG Construction Ltd executed the projects worth the millions of Kina being directly transferred above, no-one knows.
Further note that, specific reference should be made to the following which Tumbi Yari is involved:-
Investigate all direct transfers to the same Account on the 14th of December 2009. (Beneficiary Account to PNG Construction Ltd).
Investigate the cheques cashed by Tumbi Yari- Cheque Numbers- 16884,16881,16885,16882 and 16883.
The above cheques were cashed on the 15th of December 2009,the total amount is K 230,000.00 and directly transferred into Tumbi Yaris personal Account(1000908301).
There was another cheque number 16879 was directly transferred into Tumbi Yaris personal Account, investigate it.
Investigate the K 2,000,000.00 Cheque Number 16869 which was directly transferred to Tumbi Yaris personal Account from the Komo Margarima District Treasury and Operating Account.
Again, from what we all know, there was a never a JDP and BPC been conducted or had there been any of the local Construction Companies bided for the projects through the Tenders Board in the district. The people know that the very established procedures were not followed in spending the Komo Margarima funds.
Even if the JDP and BPC had been conducted, it is a question of if the JDP and BPC would advice Tumbi Yari to go ahead to have all the funds deposited into his personal Account and do huge personal withdrawals at his own will and convinience.
We believe Tumbi Yari has terribly breached the established Finance Management Act by illegal self withdrawals, direct transfers of huge amounts of money from the various accounts into his personal account.
Sir, we can all see that there was a Gross Misuse of public funds and his Management of District Funds should therefore be thoroughly investigated and he should be referred to law.
You will further note that all the funds from the District Treasury will be Drawn Under His Personal Name, instead of drawing funds under the title as District Administrator, there were direct transfers of funds from the various Accounts into Tumbi Yaris Account, there were direct transfers from the DSIP and District Treasury Operating Account to the PNG Construction Ltd and we believe these warrant him (Tumbi Yari) to be investigated and charged.
In this submission, we present to your office the following:-
Our Statement of facts ;
Bank Statements(2x)
I kindly ask you please to conduct the investigation as we see the case to be extremely serious.

Who is PNG Construction and where is the K18

October 7 2010, 4:56 PM 

Records from the bank account of the Komo Margarima District Treasury shows six payments totaling K18 million were made to PNG Construction in December 2009.

K9 million was transferred directly to PNG Construction in the week ending 3 December in three separate transactions. A further K9 million was paid via three bank cheques in the week ending 17 December.

Local people have referred details of these payments to the Prime Minister alleging they were fraudulent transaction made by Acting District Administrator Tumbi Yari as part of an on-going theft of public money.

But who is PNG Construction?

Local people in Komo allege the company is connected to their local MP Francis Potape, who knew of or collaborated in the fraud.

But according to the Registrar of Companies in the Investment Promotion Authority there is NO registered company with the name PNG Construction.

There is a registered company with the name PNG Construction and Development but the Company Extract shows this company was only registered on August 20, 2010 eight months after the K18 million was paid out from the Komo Margarima District Treasury.

PNG Construction and Development has one shareholder, Stanley Liria and two directors, Stanley and a Gudmunder Fridriksson of Waterfall Crescent in Cairns.

If this isnt the company that received the K18 million then how did PNG Construction manage to open a bank account without a valid Registration Certificate from the IPA?

There is something fishy here and maybe the bank needs to do some explaining about who opened the account, who is the authorized signatory, and what has happened to the K18 million?

Prosecute those bunch of dickheads.

October 11 2010, 9:55 PM 

This is really socking. All those corrupt practices have been going on for many years since independence. I myself from that Electorate, "Hulia Valley" I couldn't understand how these things have been going on in Komo/Margarima electorate.

Can Ombudsman Commision carry out investigation on this bunch of idiots and prosecute them? Can this has to be make it transparent to Papua New Guinea Community in an around the world and also international community to know about this sickness?

Komo Margarima people have been suffering for many many years. Most of the Komo Margarima people are still living like what their fore fathers used to live. This is 21st century. The MP who got involve in that matter has to go to jail. He is not a trusted leader anymore. Public servants are corrupted in Komo Margarima electorate. Public funds have been used up as their own personal funds.

All those idiots has to go to jail. They criminals. I apeal to the people of Komo Margarima not to vote that criminal back to parliament next election. He is taking advantage of komo margarima people. He is becoming a multimillioner by using up all your resources.

Whoever put this post up, if it is true and you have a hard evidence, you should go and talk to the media and also go straight to watchdog security for prosecuting those dickheads.

Ipa Hulia, Aussie.
