A former Papua New Guinea government minister has denied that he abused process in granting a fugitive citizenship.
An Ombudsman Commission report about the granting in 2012 of PNG citizenship for an Indonesian man, Djoko Tjandra, has finally been tabled in parliament.
The report found that Ano Pala, who was Minister of Foreign Affairs, Immigration and Citizenship at the time, abused process in granting Mr Tjandra citizenship.
Indonesian authorities had wanted Mr Tjandra for questioning over a major corruption case.
Mr Pala told Johnny Blades that the report's claims are not correct.
