Whistle blowing auditor in PNG sacked

4:21 pm on 9 February 2004

An employee who accused officials in Papua New Guinea's National Capital District Commission of fraud, has himself been sacked.

The chief Internal Auditor was suspended late last year and sacked last month.

A report he had written formed the basis for the current investigation into allegations of mismanagment, corruption and bribery in the commission.

The Auditor said the NCDC management would try to cover up by saying he was suspended for some wrong-doing.

But, he said his conscience was clear.

The City Manager, Bernard Kipit, said the chief internal auditor was sacked for fraud and mismanagement.
