Warrant of Arrest for the trio has been struck out
The Waigani District Court has struck out the Warrant of Arrests for the Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Treasurer, the Post Courier reports, however, refused to throw out the entire complaint against them.

Principal Magistrate Lawrence Kangwia made the ruling saying the Police was free to reapply for fresh warrants against the three politicians.

Mr Kangwia ruled that the warrants were not valid because the legislation they relied on was repealed in 2000, but said due process was followed in the way they were obtained.

Meanwhile, Police Commissioner Tom Kulunga, has issued a directive for Police personnel to stay clear of the matter relating to payments to Paraka lawyers.

He said an investigation was being conducted by Task Force Sweep, led by Sam Koim, and therefore no investigation or arrests would be carried out by members of the Police except those attached to the investigation team.
