Committal Court adjourns for Games

The Committal Court will be attending to fresh matters only during the two weeks period of the Pacific Games which start tomorrow (July 3).

 The Clerk of the District Court issued notices stating that normal court business will be carried out during the Games however the court will only deal with fresh cases (arrests) during the Games.

This is due to the engagement of all police prosecutors in the Pacific Games special operations.

But Supreme and National Court business will continue as per usual, officials said today.

Committal court police prosecutor Polon Koniu told PNG Loop all his cases had been adjourned to July 20.

He said other police prosecutors had also adjourned pending committal court cases till after the Games.

“We will be on standby to attend to fresh cases (arrests) only during the Games period,” Koniu added.
