The motion was filed soon after the Waigani National Court agreed to review his suspension last month.
Leave was granted by Justice Les Gavara-Nanu after Bando’s lawyers established that there were serious issued to be tried and that he had sufficient interest in the case.
Bando’s lawyer returned to court today and the matter was set for hearing on Thursday.
They will be asking the court to stay his suspension from office. Bando is also seeking restraining orders against the Public Service Minister, Hela Provincial Executive Council and its Chairman Francis Potape.
