Solomon Government confirms Moti's location

The Solomon Islands Government has confirmed it is protecting its Attorney-General Julian Moti in its High Commission building in Port Moresby. Australian Federal Police are trying to extradite Mr Moti to face child sex charges.

The Solomon Islands Foreign Minister, Patterson Oti, told Parliament in Honiara this morning that Mr Moti is hiding in the Solomon Islands High Commission in Port Moresby. Mr Oti said the High Commission was obliged to protect Mr Moti because he was a Government official and did not say whether the Attorney-General would be handed over to PNG police.

Attempts by the ABC to contact the Solomons High Commission by phone and in person this morning failed. The Solomons High Commissioner for PNG is in Fiji and says he has yet to be briefed on the situation.
