Papua New Guinea is facing trenchant criticism from Human Rights Watch for failing to act on a raft of human rights issues.

The watchdog group released its 2019 world wide report on human rights late last week.

The group's regional spokesperson, Elaine Pearson, said PNG has made little or no progress on a number of issues despite the matters being raised over a number of years.
