Kramer slams Pomat’s move


MADANG MP Bryan Kramer says Speaker Job Pomat should have ignored the call by Tewae-Siassi MP Kobby Bomareo to refer him to the Parliamentary Privileges Committee.
Kramer told reporters that Pomat had referred him over an article published outside Parliament.
“Now it is a public issue at the national and international levels. So the smartest position to take was just to ignore it,” he said.
“Instead they took an article published outside and brought it into Parliament and now trying to use parliamentary privilege to refer me for criticising the minister’s (Sam Basil) decision when he himself said in Parliament it is fake news.”
Kramer said if Basil was offended by the Facebook post, he should take him to court.
“Get police to charge me under the Cyber Crime Act,” he said.
