Carcasses rejects interim govt’s claim
The interim government has accused the former Kilman ‘government’ of illegally using the Community Development Fund (CDF) under the Prime Minister’s office to pay “MP allocations” of Vt500,000 each to four members of parliament.
These four members of parliament are Tafea Outer Islands MP Phillip Charlie, Ambae MP James Bule, Malekula MP Esmon Simon, and Santo Rural MP Samson Samsen.
The total paid out was Vt2 million.
The instruction to make these payments were made on Tuesday May 31, 2011 from the prime minister’s office to the ministry of finance.
