PNG lawyer seeks revenge after charges dropped

From , 4:03 pm on 12 December 2018

Papua New Guinea lawyer Paul Paraka says he will pursue charges against anti-fraud detectives and politicians who colluded to destroy him.

Dozens of charges of conspiracy, theft and money laundering laid against Mr Paraka were dropped this week.

A senior committal court magistrate ruled that the charges laid by the fraud squad, stemming from a probe by the former anti-corruption agency Taskforce Sweep, were an abuse of court process.

In the wake of the ruling, Johnny Blades spoke to Mr Paraka.
