  • Description

    THE BEARDED RUSSIAN NOVELIST, JULIAN SEMENOV, WAS CONFUSED AND AGITATED MAN IN CANBERRA TODAY. LAST NIGHT HE THOUGHT HE HAD PERMIT TO VISIT PAPUA NEW GUINEA - TODAY HE DISCOVERED THAT IN FACT IT HAD BEEN FLAT REFUSAL.

    MR. SEMENOV IS QUITE A TRAVELLER, FOR MATERIAL FOR HIS AND ELEVEN NOVELS, HE'S VISITED THE NORTH POLE TWICE, THE UNITED STATES, WHERE HE HAS A PUBLISHER, AND MANY OTHER COUNTRIES.

    HE'S JUST MADE A SOUTH EAST ASIAN TOUR AND WANTED TO CAP IT OFF BY VISITING PAPUA NEW GUINEA TO COLLECT MATERIAL ON NATIVE CUSTOMS AND SONGS.

    BUT TODAY, THE MINISTER FOR EXTERNAL TERRITORIES, MR. BARNES, SAID IT HAD BEEN DECIDED NOT TO GRANT MR. SEMENOV AN ENTRY PERMIT
    MR. BARNES SAID MR. SEMENOV APPLIED FOR THE PERMIT YESTERDAY AND WAS TOLD THEN IT COULD NOT BE GRANTED.

    MR. BARNES GAVE NO EXPLANATION FOR THE DECISION. IN CANBERRA, PHILIP KOCH TALKS WITH DR. FRANCIS WEST, PROFESSORIAL FELLOW IN PACIFIC HISTORY AT THE NATIONAL UNIVERSITY, ABOUT THE ATTITUDE TO RUSSIANS VISITING PAPUA NEW GUINEA. DR. WEST HAS WRITTEN EXTENSIVELY ON PAPUA NEW GUINEA AND HAS UNDERTAKEN FIELD WORK IN THE CENTRAL HIGHLANDS ON EXTENSION OF GOVERNMENT CONTROL. MR. BARNES DECLINED TO JOIN THE INTERVIEW BECAUSE OF OTHER COMMITMENTS.

    ??? HAS SAID THE ONE REASON FOR HIS ??? IN NEW GUINEA WAS THAT HE THERE OF A RUSSIAN BOOK ABOUT THE VISIT APPARENTLY, THE EXPLORER ??? ORDER, BUT WHAT LIES BEHIND WAS IN OF A PERMIT TO THIS RUSSIAN NOVELIST ??? THE MINISTER FOR EXTERNAL TERRITORIES EXPECT HIM TO LAUNCH A COMMUNIST REBELLION SINGLE HANDED, OR DOES HE FEAR THAT MR. SEMENOV MIGHT WRITE ABOUT ASPECTS OF PAPUA NEW GUINEA THAT DONT REFLECT VERY WELL ON THE WHITE MAN - SUCH THING AS THE MONTHLY TERRITORY MAGAZINE "BLACK AND WHITE" PUBLISHED IN PORT ???, AND CRAMMED WITH HILARIOUS RACIST JOKES LIKE COVER "OUR GIRL OF THE MONTH".
