11:25 am on 6 October 2011

The Office of the Leader of Opposition has filed three more complaints of misconduct against Prime Minister Danny Philip with the Office of the Leadership Code Commission.

The SIBC reports the Opposition Leader, Dr Derek Sikua, saying the complaints concern letters by the Prime Minister supporting a tax exemption and restoration of power supply to Ex-field Bakery Limited.

Dr Sikua says the Prime Minister's actions amount to misconduct contrary to the Leadership Code, and he must be held accountable for them.

The Prime Minister is out of the country.
