Court restraints PNG blogger
According to PNG Attitude, a court order was granted by Justice Collin Mikail to EC Patilias Gamato against writer, blogger and social justice advocate Martyn Namorong to ban what they have termed as ‘defamatory remarks’.
Allegedly, the case arises from Namorong calling Gamato a fruit – tomato. However, the blogger was not present as court officials could not located him.
Namorong has also protested the ban by posting a picture of himself being gagged and blindfolded.

PNG Attitude has also launched a public appeal to establish a fund should the matter be pursued in the Courts.
