Edited Transcript from Yesterday's Baki Interview

Suspended Police Commissioner, Gari Baki, 22/11/2010, Radio Australia.

Baki: Ten million kina was a result of the briefing I gave to cabinet. Specifically mentioning the fact that the LNG operations up in the Southern Highlands is basically being funded by Exxon Mobil. All police operations up there is entirely funded by Exxon Mobil ... It is for the LNG and the LNG corridors ... If we allow LNG to be continuously funded by Exxon Mobil then there is no independence of the constabulary ... We would lose our constitutional independence, and the perception and the notion is that it is just another private security company for the LNG. And that is why I made representations to the government ...  and I want the government to assist me in terms of funding.
