Papua New Guinea's Commission of Inquiry (COI) report into the special agriculture business leases has revealed a shocking trend of mismanagement and corruption in all stages of the process.
Prime Minister Peter O’Neill, who presented the report to Parliament this week, said it was very disappointing that the COI was asked to examine 75 Special Agricultural Business Leases (SABLs) but the final report examined only 42.

THE report of the special agriculture and business lease (SABL) will be tabled today, although it is not to the expectation of the cabinet, Prime Minister Peter O’Neill told Parliament yesterday.
O’Neill said that he only received two of the expected three reports from the commissioners.
He said despite that the cabinet had decided to table the final report as the country had been expecting it since last year.

THE Prime Minister, his Ministers and all MPs with political privileges cannot comment on any commission of inquiry (CoI) report unless it is officially tabled in parliament and made public.
That’s the official position of the three commissioners heading the CoI into the Special Agriculture Business Leases (SABLs).

AN interim report on the Commission of Inquiry (COI) into Special Agriculture Business Leases (SABL) will be presented to cabinet and the prime minister at the end of this month, a lawyer said. Alois Jerewai, one of the three commissioners inquiring into SABLs, said yesterday in a statement that the final report was expected to be released a few weeks after the interim report.
