Court: Biyama to remain as Governor

The Waigani National Court on Friday refused an application filed by Ati Wobiro, seeking injunctive orders against members of the Fly River Provincial Government as well as Biyama from acting in the Governor’s post.

Wobiro asked the court to put a stay on the election of Biyama dated 13 February and restrain him from carrying out duties as Governor.

Justice Hitelai Polume-Kiele refused the reliefs sought by Wobiro because the court was of the view that there was a vacancy in the Governor’s post by operation of law following Wobiro’s sentence on Nov 18, 2016.
