AUCKLAND (Radio 95bFM/Southern Cross/Pacific Media Watch): Developments surrounding Prime Minister Peter O'Neill's arrest warrant are the focus of the Pacific Media Centre's weekly Southern Cross radio programme.

Stephanie and Kenneth Tapungu share their views on the National Court's decision to dismiss the stay order on O'Neill's 2014 arrest warrant and the prime minister's own controversial moves to prevent his arrest.

Stephanie and Kenneth also discuss how PNG's 2017 general election played out in their home provinces of Madang and East Sepik with Pacific Media Watch freedom project editor Kendall Hutt.
