A man from Pangia who threatened to assassinate Prime Minister Peter O'Neill has been apprehended and charged by police in Port Moresby.
Michael Ambrose was arrested last week and locked up at the Badili Police Station.
He appeared this morning at the Waigani Committal Court from custody.
The threats were alleged to have been made on Facebook, on the Pangia Development Forum Page between April and May this year.
He was charge with one count of issuing threat to kill under Section 306 of the Criminal Code Act.
Ambrose in his early forties is also from Pagia, were the prime minister is the elected representative.
The accused further made bail application through his lawyer after his charges were read to him.
Magistrate Cosmos Bidar granted him K1,000 bail and ordered him not to interfere with witnesses and that he remain in his Morata two resident, until his case is completed.
Magistrate Bidar also said, he doubt whether Ambrose will ever get close to the prime minister when considering his bail.
