The court hearing the bribery charge against Papua New Guinea MP Tim Neville has adjourned the case until Friday.

The Milne Bay governor was arrested last Friday for allegedly bribing another MP with 1 and a half thousand US dollars, and was later released on bail.

Mr Neville has denied the charge saying the government is using state institutions to remove political opponents.
