South Sea Shipping boss, John Tonner is alleged to have attempted to bribe the MIPU Minister, Christopher Emelee, with a substantial amount of money plus financial support for the 2020 General Elections in exchange for his endorsement to Tonner Investment Ltd managing the Port Vila Tourism Wharf.

Reliable Sources within the Vanuatu Government have confirmed that the South Sea Shipping boss has tried in various ways to gain support from within the Vanuatu Government for his bid to manage the Port Vila Tourism Wharf.

At one point when the Minister of MIPU and his people were about to leave a meeting with the Ministry of Tourism, Mr. Tonner is alleged to have walked to the door and tried to lock them in and told them “he supports the government of the day and seeing that the 2020 elections are approaching, he will make sure, they are taken care of”

MIPU have confirmed that they have been placed under immense pressure to push the Wharf Management to Mr. Tonner, by various current members and former members of Government.

MIPU has stated to YTS that all activities are delayed with the Port Vila Tourism Wharf until the heat goes down so they can lodge a proper process.

The Central Tender Board have already signed off on a Commercial Proposition for Tonner Investment Limited to manage the Port Vila Tourism Wharf around the 18th of December 2018 with no tender and no shortlisting.

The approval was taken to the DCO where Directors and DG’s approved the Proposition to be taken to COM for approval.

MIPU and the Ministry of Finance strongly opposed the proposition that was going before the COM for various reasons and even the Vanuatu Government lawyer who read through the Proposition that was approved by the CTB and DCO adviced the Government that the Proposition is wrong and to not approve the proposal.

How the Commercial Proposition got past the CTB and the DCO no one has an idea.

The proposed Concession for the Port Vila Tourism Wharf Management by Tonner Investments Limited was under the Ministry of Trade and Tourism which is wrong as all Public Infrastructure is the sole responsibility of MIPU.

There is also a concern as the Coneccession covers the whole Wharf Infrastructure instead of only the back area and up to the Storage Shed. The Vanuatu Government is expected to collect revenue from the Wharf Apron and the Quay, however, with the Tonner Investment Proposition, all of this goes under their management.

Tonner Investments Ltd has 100% ownership of the Concession ultimately places the Vanuatu Government at a great loss as they do not have any provisions of any amount to be paid to the Government during the concession period.

The Concession itself does not state any monies to be paid to Vanuatu Government and any works on the Wharf during the concession, all cost will be paid for by the Vanuatu Government.

It is understood the Main Wharf was to undergo a series of urgent repairs and it is up to MIPU to ensure the wharfs structural deficiencies are priorities.

MIPU has confirmed that there will be another assessment following one that was carried out a few years ago identifying the need for a major overhaul on the Wharf and MIPU say they will engage a suitable person to perform the structural assessments and for repairs.

It is understood that the Tourism Wharf Project will need to be drafted by VPMU, or the PMU independently who will undertake the proper feasibility studies and assessments before issuing a public tender.

There is a concern that the proposition brought before COM to approve Tonner Investment Ltd, failed to take into account that Tonner Investment Ltd has no experience in wharf management and is only an agent for big cruise liners.

There is confirmation from the Vanuatu Government that The Tourism Wharf Project has not been initiated by the Vanuatu Government but is a South Sea Shipping project that John Tonner pushed the Government to accept as a Tourism Project through the Ministry of Trades and Tourism.

It is understood that Mr. Tonner might have used the Ministry of Trades and Tourism as his back door and got an express project approval from Edmond Hoke Director of CTB with no report from an evaluation Committee and the approval of the Attorney General on the 27th of December, 2018.

There are certain aspects of the concession that do point to foul play as reported by YTS earlier this week which is the project can only happen through MIPU and MFEM because MIPU is responsible for all Public Infrastructure and MFEM for all concessions. The Ministry of Trades and Tourism only come in to regulate the activity at the Wharf but cannot have an agreement for the Wharf management under their name.

Even the Minister of Trades, who was also the Deputy Prime Minister which at the time was Bob Loughman, it still does not give him clearance to sign off on Concessions of Public Infrastructure.

Having read the Commercial Proposition signed off by the CTB and put forward for COM approval, MIPU did not agree to the Concession provided by Tonner Investment Ltd as the contract limits the Vanuatu Governments power to intervene or have a say.

The Contract is described as basically a lease agreement for him to manage the wharf how he sees fit and the Vanuatu Government is supposed to trust him because P&O is willing to put in 60 million Dollars for the Main Wharf repair and also an additional 75 million for the Lelepa Tourism Wharf project.

MIPU are also concerned that the  Tonner Investment Ltd does not have the experience in Port Management, Port Regulations, Implementation of ISPS, Port State Control Member Country by Laws and Complying to the Annual IMO Audits and do not even have the resources to manage the Port Vila Tourism Wharf and yet their proposition or Concession Agreement was brought before COM for approval.

Government Officials who wish to remain anonymous say the issue would be better solved if P&O and Carribean Cruises engage the Government directly about setting up a Tourism Wharf or upgrading one and with them set out criteria for a proper tender to manage the Wharf.

It is understood Mr. Tonner has paid round trips for staff at the Ministry of Trade and Tourism to Australia and back and whether he has paid off public servants for certain favors is still unclear but how fast and how crude the concession was approved does say a lot.

The approach that allegedly led to the MIPU Minister being offered money plus other favors happened during the process of awarding the Port Vila Tourism Wharf to Tonner Investment Ltd which was signed off by the CTB.

The MIPU Minister refused the offers from Tonner and it is unclear as to what actions Minister Emelee will take on the matter.

Public Opinion supporting Minister Emelee is on a high for his stand not to accept the alleged bribe offer.

YTS will have a full article on the concession itself by next week.
