In a report PNP treasurer Norman Horne indicated senior PNP members failed to hand over portions of campaign donations collected on the behalf of the party.

The saga deepened after senior PNP member Dr Omar Davies rejected claims by the party’s general secretary Paul Burke that he collected agent fees from Chinese firms that received government contracts.

Burke reportedly claimed that a portion of the money was to be handed over to the PNP, but this did not happen.
