Solomons PM says seven ministers targeted with cash bribes to join opposition
Mr Sogavare on Wednesday evening showed local journalists SBD$50,000 in cash received by one of the ministers.
Mr Sogavare says the money, in used 50 dollar notes was handed to a senior government minister by an alleged representative of the parliamentary opposition.
The Prime Minister says a sworn statement was taken from the Minister and the money will be handed over to the Solomon Islands police today.
"I'm really disappointed with what has happened by supposed leaders of this country involving very dirty strategies to work on a scheme to over throw the grand coalition for Change Government," he said.
Opposition Leader Fred Fono has denied any involvement. He says he will comment on the accusations today.
