Delayed Judgement

Delayed court judgments not responsibility of Law Society

President of PNG Law Society Peter Kuman explained this to the Special Parliamentary Committee on Public Sector Reform and Service Delivery hearing yesterday.

He said when a reserved judgment is delayed for more than three months by the courts, the lawyers and parties involved are required to write to the office of the Chief Justice.

“They’ve got a tracking system which I understand internally, where the Chief Justice speaks to the Judge concerned, and remind them. I would assume that the Chief Justice will speak to the judge concerned.
