WELLINGTON, New Zealand (RNZI, May 29) - Papua New Guinea’s
leadership tribunal has recommended the immediate dismissal of Member of
Parliament Mao Zeming for breaching the leadership code.

Zeming, who is a former defense minister, was found guilty of
misusing millions of kina by paying public funds to companies controlled by his
associates.

The tribunal concluded that he was unworthy to continue in
office and should be dismissed.

The verdict has been given to the governor-general to be signed
to make the dismissal effective
