Johnny Blades: Papua New Guinea

From Saturday Morning, 8:45 am on 16 April 2016

Johnny Blades is a journalist with Radio New Zealand International. As part of his beat, he’s visited Papua New Guinea six times over the last few years, most recently late last year.

He’s a close observer of what’s happening in the resource-rich, but still largely impoverished country, and he discusses the bewildering background to the events of this week, when a PNG supreme court judge and the Prime Minister’s lawyer were arrested on fraud and corruptions charges.
