North Malaita Constituency MP calls for halt on government's plan of re-arming security unit

The Member of Parliament for North Malaita Constituency and Leader of the Independent Group in Parliament, Hon Daniel Enele Kwanairara has called on the government to halt its plan to re-arm the Close Personnel Protection Unit of the police.

Hon Kwanairara says the plan must be halted because there is no basis for it. He says the security of the people of Solomon Islands out-weighs the security of a few leaders.

Mr Kwanairara says the decision by Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare to re-arm the protection unit is one of the many political stunts of a leader that will haunt the country for many years to come.

Meanwhile, he claims the directive by the Prime Minister is influenced by a move to take control of critical and wider government structures and machinery.

He adds the rationale for this choice needs to be clarified to the people because RAMSI is in the country to provide security for the Prime Minister, Ministers and other Very Important People.
