The application was filed on 16 March by Twivey lawyers, who represent Prime Minister Peter O’Neill.
It stems from the contempt motions the PM filed against five members of the Opposition; Kerenga Kua, Patrick Pruaitch, Sir Mekere Morauta, Bryan Kramer and Belden Namah.
Namah is said to have been evading personal serve of the contempt motion that the Prime Minister filed against him.
It is a requirement to effect personal service on alleged contemnors. Substitute service in the daily newspapers is also available in events personal service cannot be effected.
