Sakora case: State given time to file appearance

The six constitutional questions were referred to the Supreme Court for interpretation last month to query the manner in which the Judicial Legal Service Commission appointed a tribunal, chaired by Justice Sir Bruce Robertson, to investigate if there are grounds to remove Justice Sir Bernard Sakora from his office.

The matter came for directions hearing where the Supreme Court gave the Tribunal and the state until November 3 to file notice of their appearance.

Only the Judicial Legal Service Commission is being represented in this reference.

​Sakora case: Constitutional questions referred for interpretation

The tribunal, chaired by Justice Sir Bruce Robertson on Wednesday, allowed an application by Justice Sir Bernard Sakora, referring the constitutional questions for interpretation of the Supreme Court.

His lawyer, Loani Henao, told the tribunal yesterday that the six questions query the tribunal’s appointment and the process used to appoint it.

He asked for the jurisdictional basis of the tribunal to be dealt with by the Supreme Court, before the tribunal can investigate further.
