Man who threatened to kill Prime Minister Peter O'Neill , freed

A man from Pangia in the Southern Highlands Province who was alleged to have threatened Prime Minister Peter O’Neill on social media had his case dismissed this morning at the Waigani Committal Court after the Court found insufficient evidence against his charge.
The Court heard that the accused Michael Ambrose had written some statement between the 1st April to the 8th of May 2016 on social media that indicated that he was threatening to kill the Prime Minister.

However, there was no evidence to show those exact written words and the main evidence which is a statement from the Prime Minister only states that Mr Ambrose spoilt his name as the Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea by writing very demeaning statements which annoys him every day.
Magistrate Cosmas Bidar said the Prime Minister’s statement does not indicate that Mr Ambrose threatened to kill him.
Meanwhile Magistrate Bidar said, the Prime Minister is a national leader and he is subject to public scrutiny and everyone has the freedom of speech to say something if they feel that their leaders are not doing something right.
