Justice David Canning

Lawyers get ready for hospital boss’s appeal case

The case returned to the Supreme Court early this week where Gawi’s lawyer Deborah Onga from Ashurst lawyers informed the court they had obtained transcripts of Justice David Canning’s decision on August 17 this year at the Madang National Court.

She however told the court that they were still in the process of filing the appeal book.

The matter has since been adjourned to October 19 to allow for that while parties were told to file the appeal book by October 16.

State ordered to make funds available for jail

Justice Cannings issued the orders from Kimbe on Tuesday (August 25) for the Secretary for Finance and the Secretary of Treasury to make available K400, 000 to four authorities.

He ordered for K100, 000 to be made available to the West New Britain Provincial Government, K50,000 to the Kimbe General Hospital, K150,000 to Water PNG and K100,000 to the Correctional service who will then work towards ensuring prisoners at Lakiemata have access to free flowing water.
