Chief Justice Sir Salamo

Namah leaves evidence against him unchallenged

The tribunal sitting resumed this morning for the leader to give evidence after an indication was given yesterday to members of the tribunal and the counsel assisting tribunal that he will give evidence as a witness today.

However this morning, his lawyer Greg Sheppard told the tribunal he received instructions last night that his client will not give evidence.  

Judiciary launches online case listings

Chief Justice Sir Salamo has launched the online Case Docketing System (CDS) for Court Listings via the PNG Judiciary website and is encouraging court users to make use of the online listing services to improve on their case preparations and attendance in court.

He said online posting of the cases lists for both the National and Supreme Court is the first step the Judiciary is taking in introducing the e-filing which the Supreme Court will introduce later this year.
