PNG Media Council executive suspended
10:17 am GMT+12, 03/06/2011, Papua New Guinea
PNG Media Council executive director Nimo Kama has been suspended.

MCPNG chairman Joe Kanekane confirmed Mr Kama’s suspension yesterday and announced the appointment of Lavui Bala on an acting basis.

Kanekane said the appointment follows the recent board decision of May 13 to stand down Mr Kama from duties effective as of the May 16.

He said Kama’s standing down is related to allegations of mismanagement.

Kanekane said the council wants to do a thorough investigation on the allegations in the next two months before taking further action.

Kanekane said the MCPNG board remains in control of the Media Council. The board is made up of all chief editors and executive directors of news organisations throughout the country including print and broadcast.
