PM, ministers in FIU spotlight

CLERK OF Parliament John Tangi has shown his bias against members of the opposition by withdrawing the approval of three opposition members to attend a Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) meeting in Brisbane, Australia, says Ngatangiia MP Tamaiva Tuavera.

THE OPPOSITION are the ones turning the Cook Islands parliament into a circus, not the government, says Finance minister Mark Brown.
