7 Quotations from Prominient Papua New Guineans about Peter O'Neill's Political Frenzy

7 Quotations by Senior Citizens about Recent Political Events
1.      HEAD OF THE ANGLICAN CHURCH
"If the Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill had submitted to the rule of law, his innocence would have been proven three weeks ago. But instead he had engaged his lawyers – to stay the warrant of arrest,’’ he said. [Archbishop Clyde Igara]
2.      POLICE ASSOCIATION GENERAL SECRETARY
 "It is politicians that have created this unnecessary misdemeanour. They are cherry pickers who are here today and gone tomorrow. The police force is here to stay and police officers will give a lifetime upholding the rule of law and the constitution." [Clemence Kanau]
3.      POLICE ASSOCIATION GENERAL SECRETARY
"He should shut his mouth and swallow his temporary pride," Mr Kanau said of Mr Isikiel.
4.      SACKED ATTORNEY GENERAL
Police Commissioner Geoffrey Vaki now has no legal discretion but to arrest Prime Minister Peter O’Neill. [Kerenga Kua]
5.      NATIONAL COURT JUDGE
"I find this submission to be speculative and without proper evidentiary basis,” Judge Ere Kariko said when refusing submissions by the prime minister’s lawyer regarding a "rift" in the ranks of the police force.
6.      CHIEF MAGISTRATE  - DISTRICT COURT
"Courts can only interfere when there is a clear case of abuse," [Nerrie Eliakim explanation on Vaki’s application to discontinue warrant of arrest on Peter O’Neill]
7.       CHAIRMAN – TASK FORCE SWEEP "When our leaders raised wild allegations and branded us as politically compromised, I did not respond because that would be seen as self preservation. I waited for the competent authority to vindicate us which the court had done." [Sam Koim ]
