    PNG wants Australia to end security firm Paladin's Manus contract immediately

    In the first parliamentary session since he was elected, Papua New Guinea's new Prime Minister James Marape says foreign companies like Paladin should not do security work in the country.


    Papua New Guinea's Prime Minister James Marape says he wants Australia to stop Paladin's contract for security work on Manus Island immediately.

    Mr Marape addressed PNG's Parliament on the issue, in the first sitting day since he was elected.

    The company's $423 million contract for work with refugees and non-refugees on the island comes up at the end of the month.

    Mr Marape said he does not want foreign companies to do work like security in the country, which he said could be done by local businesses.

    More to come.
