PNG learned its lesson with the Public Accounts Committee. Never again will anyone have access to anything which might possibly, conceivably, maybe in any way slightly incriminatory of anyone for anything.

That is why the PAC was quietly stripped of all its discretionary powers by government and why the Office of the Auditor General had its bank accounts appropriated under the Public Money Management Regularisation Act - so there can be no pesky oversight of anything.

Australia has got freedom of information legislation.

Try using it and you'll discover how they fight not to give you the information you desire.

Having legislation is not the solution to the problem. PNG has lots of good legislation.

A lot of it is not administered properly or at all.

How an Act is administered is a measure of success, not the legislation itself.
