Justice Peter Toliken

Abau petition thrown out

The Waigani National Court threw out the petition for being incompetent, stopping it from proceeding to the trial stage.

Justice Peter Toliken ordered the dismissal of the case after he found the petition failed to plead relevant and material facts to support his allegations of bribery.

He gave a ruling on a motion that was filed by Temu, challenging the competency of the petition that was filed by Evela Kala.
