The allegation came after Opposition member and MP for East Honiara, Douglas Ete was alleged to have used an ambulance to try and smuggle sick government MP and Chairman of Caucus from his home to the Opposition camp.
Speaking to Radio New Zealand International, Prime Minister's Press Secretary, Alfred Sasako, said that the incident was reported and: "when the police arrived at the scene and opened the ambulance door they saw the member for East Honiara sitting in there in the ambulance. There were no doctors in there. There were no other paramedics. The family members just told the police to get the ambulance moving or it would be stoned,” he said.
