Moti filmed leaving SI High Commission in Port Moresby

The Solomon Islands Attorney-General, Julian Moti, has been seen leaving the Solomons High Commission in Port Moresby. An ABC camerman filmed him as he sped away from the building.

Mr Moti is an Australian lawyer appointed as the Solomons highest legal officer and is wanted on paedophilia charges in Australia. Australia has been seeking to have him extradited to face child sex charges.

The ABC's PNG correspondent Steve Marshall says at the moment Mr Moti is free to leave.

"The Solomons Government is working urgently to provide Mr Moti a new passport, obviously Australia cancelled his passport. But there's a flight today morning from Port Moresby to Honiara and it will be very interesting to see if Mr Moti is on board that", he said.

Mr Moti left the High Commission in a white car, dressed in a Hawaiian shirt and dark trousers. He held up his hand as a cameraman approached and then made a 'no worries' gesture with the same hand.
