Papua New Guinea's Manus  MP Ronny Knight has been dismissed from office by the Leadership Tribunal that was set up to investigate allegations of misconduct against him.

The Tribunal found Mr. Knight guilty of four corruption-related allegations in relation to the expenditure of Manus Open’s district support improvement program (DSIP) funds totalling K2.5 million.

Mr Knight was alleged to have manipulated the joint district planning and budget priorities committee meetings to access funds for the payment of the ship MV Trade Star. The ship was then alleged to have been run by a company owner related to the MP.
