Arrest warrant issued for former PNG prime minister Peter O’Neill

Port Moresby: Papua New Guinea police have issued an arrest warrant for former prime minister Peter O'Neill for alleged "official corruption".

Acting police commissioner David Manning said in a statement that O'Neill had been found at Port Moresby's Crowne Plaza Hotel on Tuesday morning but he had so far refused to co-operate.

The warrant was issued on Friday but Manning said he could not go into detail due to the sensitivity of the investigation.
