Ramu Nickel Mine Project Controversy Papers

PORT MORESBY (Asia Pacific Network/Pacific Media Watch): A bitter information struggle over the future of the controversial Ramu nickel mine project on Papua New Guinea's Madang province has drawn the attention of regional environmental groups.

Activists have criticised prominent PNG journalist and National newspaper columnist Kevin Pamba about his conduct over an interview with a landowner who has opposed the mine project.

The interview at Divine Word University ended abruptly when mine supporters arrived, allegedly abducting the landowner and assaulting him.

Pamba claims mine opponents are spreading "misinformation and misunderstanding".
