Curators issues expected on agenda for Parliament seating


PARLIAMENT will sit for three weeks from Tuesday, Clerk Vela Konivaro says.
While unable to confirm the order of the business for the session, Konivari told The National that the sitting would also be determined by the Government through the Leader of Government Business.
The National Executive Council (NEC) meets today to deliberate on some of the submissions. The approved ones would be tabled in Parliament.
Minister for Justice and Attorney-General Davis Steven will be submitting a list to NEC that will include a report on the Public Curator’s Office.
“That’s the state of the diseased – all the money left behind by dead people. Enough is enough, I’m going to bring the submission to amend the legislation and to report to Parliament,” he said.
“That submission from Constitutional and Law Reform Commission, I want the annual report to tell Parliament.
“I’m also preparing a submission on the Public Prosecutor’s Office, Office and National Coordination Mechanism Committee (NCM) which comprises heads of all the law and justice sector.
“Law and justice sector must be coherent, we must work together to avoid duplication.
“NCM must now communicate with the ministerial committee with the churches, community development and youth in the fight against corruption and law and order in building a new society in PNG.”
