National and Supreme Court of PNG

Discharge duties in fairness, says Cannings

Justice David Cannings of the National and Supreme Court of PNG made the comments recently in Port Moresby when doing a presentation at the Judicial Conference on ‘Unrepresented litigants and what the courts can do’ to assist people who bring cases before the courts .

An unrepresented litigant is a person who is a party to a legal proceeding who does not have a lawyer to represent them.

He said in PNG, the problems regarding litigants in person are not nearly as great as those in other countries.
