PNG fund offers reward over abusive blog comment

3:14 pm on 3 June 2011

The board of the Papua New Guinea superannuation fund, NASFUND, is offering a reward for information published on blogs that it says is factually incorrect, malicious and defamatory.

The board is offering a reward of about 20,000 US dollars in an effort to have the people behind the attacks arrested.

It says the articles are not only a serious attack on the integrity of the NASFUND board and management, they're also a mischievous attempt to create confusion and instability amongst its contributors.

NASFUND says the authors have used the cloak of anonymity to perpetrate a cowardly and criminal smear campaign.
