Motions in Koloma’s case adjourned

A number of motions filed before the Waigani District Court in relation to a case involving National Statistician Roko Koloma will return to court next month.

These include court orders issued last month to stay a warrant of arrest obtained against Koloma by police on allegations of official corruption.

His lawyer returned before Magistrate Cosmas Bidar today, where the motions were adjourned to May 29 on consent by parties.

The motions, which also include a contempt motion filed by Koloma, will be heard in court then.

A warrant of arrest was obtained by police for Koloma on April 13. He then took out a stay on his arrest on April 30.

The allegations against Koloma involve misappropriation of K25 million between 2016 and 2017.
