Embassy shuts down

RNZ – There’s disappointment in Papua New Guinea that operations of another of its overseas missions has effectively ground to a halt.

A recent court decision in Washington DC to lock out PNG embassy staff follows three months of arrears in rental payments.

Dwindling funds to overseas missions by PNG’s government has seen High Commission and Embassy staff in Singapore, Beijing and Washington go through long periods without pay in the last year.

The leader of the National Party Kerenga Kua said the issue had been raised before.
