The evasive denial of Peter O’Neill to respond to the wishes of PNG students to put him through corruption charges seems to be frustrating the wishes of the majority (FS 29/4/16; PACNEWS) The investigative powers and independence of the corruption unit is of great importance and no one should be above the law through special treatment when others have been arrested and charged already. He should be able to explain and defend himself against the allegation(s). He paints a picture of despitefulness and is unconcerned about the grievances of his people and the need to stand up to justice. He should not remain undeterred amidst calls to follow the law. It certainly looks dictatorial to me if he is not treating the allegation with urgency. The authority and independence of the judiciary should not crumble under the influence of more powerful elites in the system, who support undemocratic orientations.
