O’Namah tries horse trading with the judiciary
10 April 2012
FLIP-FLOPPING PRIME MINISTER Peter O'Neill has remained defiant in the face of protests saying the judicial conduct law will only be removed if chief justice Salamo Injia resigns.
Arriving with a government entourage under heavy police guard, O'Neill addressed more than 4,000 people at the Sir John Guise Stadium at midday yesterday.
The PM also wants another senior judge, Justice Kirriwom, to step aside as part of a trade off to have the judicial conduct law repealed.
Both judges have been at the centre of the controversy between government the judiciary.
O'Neill's response has drawn public anger from Papua New Guineans both on the streets and on social media networks.
"What's the next step PNG? I'd like an all out rampage across the nation. This is so bloody waste of time. Do we now fear these dictators," said one Twitter user.
