PNG's Kua has no regrets

10:56 am on 25 June 2014

Papua New Guinea's sacked attorney general says he has no regrets over his actions this past week and has reiterated his call for the Prime Minister to resign.

Kerenga Kua was fired by Peter O'Neill for speaking out against the government's latest controversial amendments to the constitution and for standing up for the now disbanded anti-corruption unit, Task Force Sweep.

Mr O'Neill has been embroiled in controversy after being issued an arrest warrant following a Task Force Sweep investigation.

Kerenga Kua says the only way the controversy will go away is if Peter O'Neill resigns.

"He has to. It's a question of what type of country we want to build in the Pacific region. Do we want to build a country with a reputation for legal compliance or is it a case of selective acceptance of the law as and when it suits us and when it doesn't we don't."
