Court issues orders against Blogger

The Waigani National Court this afternoon granted the orders sought to Commissioner Gamato after his lawyer moved an application before Justice Collin Makail.

The urgent application was moved without Namarong in court because they could not locate him to serve the documents. The application was heard ex-parte.

Justice Makail granted the application, allowing for the serve of the orders to be published in both daily newspapers.
