Solomons MP says police need to declare results of probe into PM

A parliamentarian in Solomon Islands has asked police to come clean about their investigation into the alleged involvement of the prime minister in certain crimes.

The East Malaita MP, Joses Sanga, says police should declare the results of their investigations into allegations against Sir Allan Kemakeza.

Mr Sanga cited the Prime Minister's alleged involvement in the Sol-Law robbery incident of May 2002 for which two former Malaita militants have been jailed, while another two accused are awaiting trial.

Mr Sanga says the need to have the Prime Minister's cleared is necessary and important because he's the leader of the government.

The Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation reports the Police Commissioner Shane Castles as saying the force has considered the allegations thoroughly, but they remain unsubstantiated.
