Anti-corruption body Transparency Solomon Islands welcomes moves to set up ICAC

Updated 7 January 2015, 10:07 AEDT

Solomon Islands looks to set to have an Independent Commission Against Corruption - a body many people in the country say is well overdue.

Transparency Solomon Islands led the calls earlier this week for such a commission, on the back of several controversial appointments to Cabinet by the new Prime Minister Manesseh Sogavare.

But even the country's outgoing high court judge, Australian Justice Stephen Pallaras told Pacific Beat late last year that an ICAC was required in Solomon Islands more than any other "on the planet".

Presenter: Catherine Graue

Speaker: Daniel Fenua, Transparency Solomon Islands Executive Officer
