Potape should be arrested

September 20 2011, 2:06 PM 

Whoever Wali is, Potape is not on the list for the K125million saga. he is on the list for massive misuse of Komo/Margarima funds. Anyways, wali, at least you knew that Potape is a corrupt leader.

JP says, provide facts. You maybe right in saying this for the K125million saga but not for misuse of Komo/Margarima funds. If you want facts and figures, we will provide.

Have Potape arrested too. Lock him at Mendi cell if he is there. If he is in Hagen, lock him Hagen cell. Do not entertain criminals. Criminals a evil doers.

Get rid of those weeds and let the wheats grow. Good guys for the investigating team. If we continue to weed out the weeds, our nation would prosper. Our province and electorate would prosper. People would live a better life.

Why corrupt leaders live in luxurious while their poor people live in rags? Who gave them the mandate? People's power so think of such corrupt leaders.

People would come around and sleep with you in the dirtiest house during the come election. Give to whom you trust.

I salute the investigating teams for the Kokopo deal and Komo/Margarima misuse and Snr Cons. Dominic Kakas for alerting people on crime stoppers reports every afternoon. Keep up the job.

No Credit to Sam Koim and Team Yet

September 19 2011, 9:31 AM 

Good work so far...I reserve my credits/Priase to operation clean sweep under Sam Koim until I see these culprits prosecuted, tried in court and jailed. Only then I would say "case closed" . Well done to.But the going so far is good.

Sam Koim - Political Tool

September 19 2011, 10:08 AM 

Sam Koim is a political tool used by current government to service the interest of them. If i was sam koim i would seriously look both side of the coin before making arrests. Most importantly i will remember they the very same people that is directing him rite now are the very same people that where in volved in this massive corruptiosn in the first place.. Same government people. People like Peter Oneil, Don Poyle, William Duma...
My advise to Sam Koim,,, slow down,,, ur flying to high....

Matey,
For you infor.....Patrick Pruiatch was the Treasurer Finance Minister, and Patrick Tamur with Paul Tiensten proposed the K125m release. It was a OUTRIGHT CORRPUT deal!!

Pruiatch then forged Sir Miachaels signature...., demanded Nasfund to fund the ghost project. The proposal or the bill never went to Parliament as it was supposed to be. The proper procedure! Oneill, Polye or Duma never involved..... When Oneill became the Treasurer he suspected coverup and raised it with Sir Micahale and Abal, ....then Abal came under pressure had to move Oneill to Public Service Ministry and recall Patrick Pruiatch, who was still suspended that time to Treasurer. Again for coverups.

Let the good work begin, and uproot ccorrpution for once and all. If the leaders are prosecuted and jailed, it will send a right signal.

I don't know which 2 side of the coin you talking about????

@ Anti Corruption

Sam Koim should do his job without fear or favour. If he is being used as a tool, so what? At least he gets half the job done. He needs everyone's support to go the whole distance - from successful prosecution of the cases to incarceration of the criminals. And if by any chance there is a change in government, they can still hire Koim or another 'tool' to work on the current mob in power, to sweep the floor clean. Who else will do the job? Let Koim finish his task. Isn't that the desire and wish of all thinking and suffering people?

I applaud the anti corruption task force and the work done so far by Mr Koim.

My only question is why are the Politicians the ones being targetted? For any scheme to work, it is the Secretary, FA's who actually prepare and implement the documents to get the monies out.

Forexample, can some one tell if if the K125million saga is declared by the any court of this country to be iligel? Its common sense untill the investigations proves that the procedure and the process that was followed is flawed and breaks some kind of a law then and only then can we make arrest.
Sam Koim is a too young and foolish to see whats coming his way.. he is young and only wants to make quik cash but too stupid to know that people are using him for their own gain.. he better wake up from the high roller coaster ride and see the landing strips...

I will have more trust if board of directors of the Nasfund is arrested also, then the ministers, then the contractors.. The way i see it, they are jumping the gun to score points,,,i.e they are rushing to please the people,, and to sheef the blame of corruptions to the Current oposition but not them self,,like W.Duma D.Poly.P.Oneil.B.Nama.J.Nape.F.Marus.M.Maladina.

U are corect in saying Sam Koim is young but u do not seem to believ that young generation will make a difference. I suggest u google Sam Koim n find out who he was n his. Until u do ur homewok, u cannot be a fair critic but driven by jelousy. Criminal investigations take time and only time will tel whether they are driving the political masters agenda. Having a critical mind is gud but leaning towards a negative one is bad coz u will never appreciate the good out of the bad. Draw your conclusions after Sam Koim finishes

So can we all just shut the F@#k up and let him do what he is doing? At least some MP's are running for cover so let it be. Maybe the next Government will have its own "Sam Koim" to get the MP's in the current government to run. So its **** both ways and lets fight fire with fire - let young Sam do his job for God's sake !!!! You guys are raving on and nagging like a house-wife over every little thing that appears good and accepting that PNG is labelled **** by default. Thats low pretty damn low.

K 125million??

September 21 2011, 11:19 AM 

@JP - the K125 million fund raising was done outside of the government budgetary process which is illegal so I really don't see why you are so upset?

However, the rot only begins there. We still have the Commission of Inquiry report still gathering dust, we have RESI funds still unaccounted for etc.etc.

As mentioned by the article in PNG Blogs - the current governement would best address corruption by implementing stringent laws & empowering the watchdog agencies to prosecute the worngdoers rather than pursuing this investigation. Because once it is started, where does it stop?

The deeper we dig, we might end up asking questions of our current PM - Mr O'Niel????

September 21 2011, 11:54 AM 

Folks,
The K125million saga is been used as a politcal tool to prosecute Somares strong men Paul Tienstain and also to discredit somares regiem. Politically it is a good move. However, my concern here is that will this political orchestrated move karim kaikai...
I douth it would,, why,, because i see that the whole thing is rushed by Sam Koim and the Team. They dont seem to care to who they charge or what they say on the papers. They are charging people who are the last receipients of the funds. They should start from P.Pruitch and the Nasfund Board down. But before they do that, they have have clear evidence to charge them with. Poor A.Kingsly's lawyer is correct, what will the Team charge A.Kinglsy for? The last time we want to see is all the hard work down by Task force gone donw the drain for minior Technical legal issue..
My advise to the Team is please take ur time and create a legal fundations on what charges will be applied to the people that are involved. Starting from Nasfund board to the minister then to all the contractors that have not done there jobs yet.
Also, am confused here, the task force was create to investigate massive corruptions at all levels rite, and if thats the case i thing its a waste of time ... cuz to simply put it,,, they dont have the man power and the technical know how to prosecute, they are only good a arresting people and boast on the news paper.

Yes misappropriations of K125 or K6.6million
can't u see the difference, how can u charge A. Kingsly of misappropriations of K125million when he is not the party to get that money. If he is the subcontractor then they can charge him for contracually obligations to not doing what is is suppose to do with the K6.6million. And if what he is say ing is true that, he is doing job and machinary he both are actually at ground. Then the task force has just wasted time and money. Which bags the questions what is the motive behind this Task force... They shoud start with Where the money come from then to the people like A.Kingsly. From what they are doing is just political propoganda to score points.

Re: to Todays Newspaper

I don't think you understand. There's a strategy called "doing the Maladina" that Mr Kingsley should certainly try out, since it's worked for Peter O'Neill and so many others.

STEP 1: Try to bribe the police into losing all the evidence against you.
Failing that...
STEP 2: Try to bribe the prosecuting lawyers into not showing up the day of the trial, which then leads to a default judgement and Mr Kingsley going free for 'lack of evidence'.
Failing that...
STEP 3: Try to bribe the judge to throw out the case on some stupid legal techicality.
Failing that...
STEP 4: Make endless appeals against a guilty verdict until by chance you hit pay dirt and your case is overturned, or until the case just kind of disappears off the record books. Remember Jimmy Maladina's court case?

After all, the findings will end up in the high courts and thats where its will all be determined whether or not the "small" boy and his team were just playing marbles or not. Besides we all know the Ombudsman Commission etc are all teethless ...they have been shutting up and kept quiet in bigger issues in the Somare Government. If you call Sam Koim a small boy then why are your big-boy MP's running and fleeing and avoiding police interviews ? I begin to wonder if you are being affected here and why you are so uneasy with the "small" boys activities. Good luck to you all. Whether the COI's get actioned or not is up to the Government of the day BUT ATLEAST CROOKS AND THEIR CRONIES GET EXPOSED IN THESE INVESTIGATION, GET THEM RUNNING SO THAT ORDINARY PEOPLE IN THE VILLAGES AND HARD WORKING TAX PAYERS LIKE MYSELF ARE BETTER INFORMED OF HOW THESE SICK MP THEIVES ARE SO THAT WE WILL NOT VOTE THEM BACK WHEN THEY BRING "OUR" STOLEN MONEY BACK TO THE ELECTIONS TO BUYS GIFTS AND VOTES ....GOOD WORK SAM ...YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB !!!! Lastly I challenge you to meet Mr. Sam Koim - he has a good heart and he is a man of Christian Principles !

Let Koim and his team sweep the K125m saga to something the public will be happy. K10m given to Wartoto and K1.9b Tiensen diverted to ??? are also in the pipeline.

Whether Koim does a good job in the interest of the public or a mere political witch-hunt, just let him do his job as directed. He is a senior state lawyer, and its HIS JOB TO PROTECT THE STATE from CORRUPTION!

Go Sammy Boy go

Sam - You and your team have the public support to clear the mess created by a selfish few. Apart from the K125m NASFUND saga, go after all those Paul Tienstan CLOWNS like Jefery Puipui, Willaim, Pondros and countless others who applied for NPO funds and received it under pretense for thier own use.

SAMPLA blo nau live like kings - BUT not long before that like me they were below the national average!!!

...and i hope it goes little further and uncover the rot involving Patrick Pruiatch(then forest minister) of the Singapore Log Export Trust Account, a tune of K40m...and the Taiwan Diplomacy Water Bottle saga involving Paul Tienstein and Timothy Bonga and others, who took part in the US$30m saga.

Well done Sam Koim

October 14 2011, 3:08 PM 

Sam Koim and his team is doing a fine job. Anybody seeing fit to criticise Sam Koim's leadership in this team must do so if he/she is familiar with his (SK)personal background otherwise don't waste your energy as he is very inteligent and God fearing.... Anyway Sam, can the investigation team re-activate the inquiry into the NPF saga and implement recommendations provided by investigators? .... may be not possible now because the current PM and the brother of Moses Maladina are heavily implicated ... its no wonder that when we see the PM, Mr. M Maladina is always there. Are they Mr. Clean or pretending to be one but are hidding behind veils of political corruption? Every time i see them in the printed or electronic media, ifeel like vomiting. I do not think for one minute that these type of leadrs have answers for this nation of ours. Look at them, great pretenders acting as if they are not corrupt .. shame shame shame!

@ Hagen North Kange - yes it would be good if the NPF saga file was brought to the table but as you mentioned the PM has his name on it too. And since the terms of reference are set and endorsed by the government , this is one case that won't make it on the list - it has to wait till the next Government. But on the whole , Sam Koim is doing a great job and he is very bold to undertake this role. Let's support him and give him praise where due instead if raising unfounded personal criticisms and accusations against him. I'm sure his not loving this job and having fun but it's a daunting task.

Jp, You keep supporting the crooks. Why? Are you in the team? If you or I do not say anything about the corrupt activities of our mandated leaders, then who is gonna say? Think and talk. What you are saying does not justify what the leaders have done. Wrong is wrong and how can you say it is right when it is wrong? JP, you better change your mind and start talking about fighting corruption. Are you feeding on the same plates as the corrupt MPs? Let Sam Koim do his job. You just keep your mouth shut and let the law take its cause.
There are no separate laws for leaders and for the ordinary people.

Sam Koim, good job. Keep doing it at your own pace. We are proud of what you are doing. FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION PLEASE. IT IS EVERY BODY'S BUSINESS. If no one does it, who will do it? We have to do it for the good of our country, our children and future generations to come.

ATTACK THE PROBLEM BUT NOT THE PERSON.

I have no problem with anything you say IF you will not write a posting that sounds like one side is anti-corruption and the other side is not. Remember, both governments are corrupt (many have the same ministers in charge) and all this anti-corruption action may lead to zero convictions and thus be a planned farce and trick on all of us leading up to the election.

So please use your time to equally demand that Peter O'Neill and Jimmy Maladina face the music on the yet unresolved NPF scandal. Please.

Everyone has to face the music if the system is going to work. Make sure that other readers see you as playing fair on all sides of the fence.

JP your arguments are baseless to attack Sam Koim. Sam is a very young man but matured and u targetting him shows a man who missed out on doing something for the country at Sam's age because he was immature in his head.

Maturity does not come with age but having the right attitidte and heart.

PNG let's support Sam in prayer and by words of encouragement, regardless of his age whatsover.

The outcome Sam and his team trying to acheive are the same for years we have been crying for and that is to ROOT OUT CORRUPTION at all levels especially with our politicians and down. At least there is a start there and Sam Koim has raised his hands to spearhead it....PNG let's support the SWEEP Team

I'm tired of this nonsense talk like what you've writen: "have the right attitude and heart". First please explain to us what you mean by this. Second give us some actual information and evidence that Sam Koim has any of this. Your just like the supporters of all the past corrupt pollies, you can't give any details all you can do is rhetoric and PR. on and on and on. It gets tiring because it is such tok nating.

Sam is just a hound dog

November 28 2011, 4:01 PM 

Sam is just doing his master's bidding that's all.

Most MPs are corrupt, including Oneil, Namah, Maladina, Polye, Duma, etc but Sam Koim's sweep team will only go after those that Oneil tells him to go after. So we will only see them chase the 20 members of the current opposition and prosecute them. The rest who are in government will get clean away.

That's the way things work in PNG. So don't talk about Sam's christianity or what a great guy he is, at the end of the day he has a Terms of Reference which spells out to him who he is supposed to investigate. He is not allowed to act outside this TOR.

So noken boast nambaut when you are not able to work out what this investigation is all about. It is not about getting rid of corruption, its all about getting rid of the opposition.

My friend no wonder you still need teaching and explanation on having "right attitudes and heart"

I mean you have a heart to see this nation changed for the good. We have an abaundance of natural resources in gas, oil, gold, timber, fish, coffee, cocoa u name it but there is no tangible change in the country because the money is not managed right by the people we entrust with.

That's why we need people with this kind of heart with the right attitudes (unwavering in what they believe in) to do something) but you will hardly find people like that because there are not many of them. There could be some but they are grumbling and mumbling with old women feables because they are afraid to do something right in what capacity they are in.

I do not know who the hell Sam Koim is but guys, the man is at least trying to put sense into people misusing our money. Can we support that for goodness sake....He can be worse than the politicains or the beauracrats who cares because we have seen over and over people we thought were good were the worst.However, the end product I want is all those steal man meri to be behind bars. I do not want to study the background of who is doing it, his age, qualification, does he drink, even his personal life but all I want is aleast someone pays for stealing this country's money and that's why I support what he is doing. I do not support him but what he is doing.

Ima, did you understand my posting?

I do not need to be educated, I simply outlined the futility of your the previous arguments. Nothing will change because the really big theives are actually in government.

The K125m kokopo deal has been investigated and the biggest crooks in that deal are NASFUND. Do you see them being prosecuted? Noooo.

Just wake up from your sleep friend and smell the coffee.
