CBC questions PNG Gov't over deportation of archdiocese administrator

The Catholic Bishops Conference is questioning the Government, if it supports the people and churches, or are serving the interest of multi national companies or profit interest organizations.
President of the C B C of PNG and Solomon Islands, Bishop Rochus Tatamai said churches have a lot of volunteers and missionary workers, who partner with them to deliver services to the rural population.
Bishop Tatamai made the call today following the deportation of Archdiocese Administrator for Rabaul and lay missionary, Doug Tennent on Monday to New Zealand.
Mr Tennent, a Law Lecturer at UPNG for many years, had been assisting landowners on sensitive issues in Kokopo, including the Sigite Mikus Oil Palm project in West Pomio, since 2014.
Rochus Tatamai said the sudden deportation of Mr.Tennent is an abuse of the legal process where every body has a case to always be represented and presented.
