Port Moresby: Pa­pua New Guinea’s Supreme Court has ruled that the head of the po­lice fraud squad can­not par­tic­i­pate in a Na­tional Court pro­ceed­ing re­gard­ing the va­lid­ity of an ar­rest war­rant for the Prime Min­is­ter.

Fraud squad de­tec­tives have sought the ar­rest of Peter O’Neill since 2014 for ques­tion­ing over his role in al­leged il­le­gal state pay­ments to a law firm. The bench said the Po­lice Com­mis­sioner was in­stead the ap­pro­pri­ate per­son to rep­re­sent the Po­lice.
