Lau’s court proceedings transferred to Madang

Presiding Magistrate, Albert Daniels, transferred the case because the Waigani Committal Court did not have jurisdiction to proceed with the matter, considering the alleged offense was committed in Madang.

“In the current district court act, transfer proceedings are dealt with in section 24. This means that this court can transfer proceedings to Madang.
