MICAH TO GET K640,000 IN 'GOLDEN HANDSHAKE' by Daniel Korimbao (The National 22/1/02)
PRIVATISATION Commission Executive Chairman Ben Micah will receive more than K640,000 in a golden handshake when he leaves the Privatisation Commission. Mr Micah appointment was revoked by the National Executive Council during its meeting last Thursday. He is expected to leave the commission on February 28, 2002. Mr Micah's public profile and integrity was brought into question when the Papua New Guinea Banking Corporation, the State-owned bank which Mr Micah succeeded in selling off under the government's privatisation program, sought insolvency proceedings against him for a pervious outstanding loan arrangement he had with the bank. Mr Micah claimed that the publicity of this proceeding has hurt his standing in the community, and wrote to the Prime Minister to be relieved from his duty. His appointment was for a period of five years, commencing on October 25, 1999 and ending on October 24, 2004. He actually signed his employment contract on November 8, 2000. When he leaves, he would have effectively served only 15 months as executive chairman of the commission, leaving a balance of 32 months remaining on his contract. But the NEC has decided to remove him and pay him approximately K648,244 before tax the equivalent of 18 months remuneration of his remaining portion of his contract of employment, and any other entitlements due to him. When he leaves the Privatisation Commission, Mr Micah is expected to assume a leadership role in the Pan Melanesia Congress Party, the new party, which he helped founded only last year. While he has made no public statement, Mr Micah is expected to contest the Kavieng Open seat in New Ireland province, the seat he lost in the 1997 general elections. In the submission to the NEC to authorise Mr Micah's termination and payout, Privatisation Minister Vincent Auali said he was a driving force behind the Government's privatisation program. Minister Auali said under Mr Micah's stewardship, substantial progress was made towards achieving the privatisation program.
But the minister admitted that the publication of the insolvency proceeding has done "irreparable harm to his name and reputation", and Mr Micah needed to be relieved of his duties to fight the case.

Although the objective of the mission ..., 31 Aug 2014 [cached]
Although the objective of the mission by PNG's Minister for State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs), Ben Micah, remained shrouded in secrecy, those familiar with it said it was two-fold. Establishing a framework for the Integration of Melanesian Economy is said to be the first and the second to secure regional support for PNG's candidate for the position of Secretary General of the Suva-based Pacific Forum Secretariat. Minister Micah met with Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo in Honiara on 3rd June before travelling on to Port Vila for a meeting with the Vanuatu Prime Minister.
Micah's almost secretive trip took the PNG High Commission officials in Honiara by surprise. No one knew the Minister was coming until his private jet had landed at Henderson Airport in Honiara. "We know nothing about the Minister's travel arrangements," one PNG High Commission official told Foreign Affairs in Honiara. As a result no PNG High Commission officials were present either on arrival or when Minister Micah flew out of Honiara.
