A former attorney general in Papua New Guinea wants to know where the police commissioner gets his authority to treat politicians and senior government servants more leniently than the general public.

Kerenga Kua says the commissioner Gary Baki requires that no MP or senior government official is arrested, charged or prosecuted without his say so.

Mr Kua told Don Wiseman that Mr Baki has to reveal who gave him the authority to treat these prominent people preferentially.
