Dear Editor,

Solomon Saiki appears to be someone badly in need of a thorough medical check up.

Where the money for the 50/50 share arrangement is none of Mr. Saiki's business.

I have covered developments in the mining industry in PNG for many years and none of the companies disclosed where their financing came from.

I also wish to disassociate myself from the Vangunu Palm Oil project. True I was a Minister in the government which initially signed the agreement with Sylvania, but anyone with a little experience in government would know, each minister is allocated a specific portfolio.

The Vangunu Palm Oil Project is a mess. Over the years, it had changed hands and unfortunately some of the changes were engineered by local people.

For Saiki to blame me for it is like a lazy dog barking at the wrong tree

Alfred
