Following the election of a new Prime Minister in the Solomon Islands, the Federal Opposition has called on the Rudd Labor Government to immediately seek the extradition of Julian Moti to face child sex allegations.
“I would like to congratulate Dr Derrick Sikua on his election as Prime Minister of the Solomon Islands,” the Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon Andrew Robb AO MP, said today.
“Dr Sikua was elected by an overwhelming number of his Parliamentary colleagues and the Liberal and National Parties look forward to supporting the continuing program to assist the Solomon Islands that was initiated by the previous government.
“I hope the Australian Government has already communicated to the new Prime Minister the importance that this country places on Mr Moti answering the allegations that have been made against him and has offered any and all assistance to ensure this takes place as soon as possible.
“I am also encouraged by the new Government’s stated intention, prior to the election of Dr Sikua as Prime Minister, that they would facilitate the return of Moti back to Australia.”
