The governor of Papua New Guinea's Madang province has been granted bail after being charged with various offences.
Peter Yama is charged with one count each of bribery, perverting the course of justice, conspiring to commit a crime, abuse of office and official corruption.
The National reports that Mr Yama presented himself for questioning at the Madang Police Station on Friday.
He was granted bail of 6000 kina, and is expected to appear in court next week.
Earlier, Mr Yama denied he had been evading police over an alleged bribery case.
The governor last month filed a human rights application in the national court to try and stay police investigations into the allegations.
His lawyer, Ben Lomai, is due to appear before the Waigani Committal Court next week on the charges of attempting to pervert the course of justice in relation to Mr Yama's case.
The case at the heart of the charges against Mr Yama relates to allegations he bribed electoral officers during the 2017 general election.
The governor told RNZ Pacific last year the money he gave to two election officials was not a bribe.
He said he only helped them out as a father figure with money for food, when they were hungry and approached him.
The two election officials were convicted by the National Court, after they failed to report money they received from a candidate.
