THE Acting Papua New Guinea High Commissioner to Solomon Islands, Sakias Tameo has been recalled by Ministry of Foreign Affairs on January 4th.

This came after he came to Honiara to replace Brian Yombom-Copio after involving in a vehicle accident at Mataniko bridge, Chinatown.

According to PNG government’s policy, appointments and revocation of appointments of high commissioners and ambassadors, or heads of missions, is the prerogative of the National Executive Council (cabinet).

As such Yombom-Copio still remains as the high commissioner of Solomon Islands to represent PNG until such time Cabinet revokes his appointment.

When Solomon Star contacted Yombom-Copio to comment, he said he had no interest in the issue but want to concentrate on his New Year’s programme.

One of the main programmes is establishing the failed PNG chancery project.

Meanwhile, PNG Government currently have more than 50 companies investing in Solomon Islands.
