Fraud and Anti-Corruption Directorate Directors

This week in court – review

One significant case that got dismissed by the Supreme Court this week was the one involving the PNG Sustainable Development Program (PNGSDP).

The case got dismissed today (Friday) after Sir Mekere Morauta filed an application challenging the government’s decision to acquire shares belonging to the PNGSDP.

The court found that Sir Mekere did not have standing to bring such applications in court as a private citizen, and the correct party that should be in a court of law seeking relief in the application should the company, SDP, and not its chairman, Sir Mekere.
