Flaws in PNG deportation process to be raised

From , 3:04 pm on 22 August 2017

A New Zealand Catholic lay missionary working in Papua New Guinea says he wants to raise concerns about the country's deportation process.

Doug Tennent has returned to work for the Archdiocese of Rabaul after being illegally deported from the country in June.

That sparked an outcry and Mr Tennent has been allowed back into PNG, but he has a new visa with some limits on it.

Mr Tennent spoke to Don Wiseman about his concerns with the country's approach to deportation, but he began by describing the nature of the work he is now doing in and around Rabaul.
