​Polye failed to give instructions to lawyer

The Supreme Court application was filed by Don Polye last year, challenging the Government’s decision to acquire the K3 billion UBS loan in 2013.

The matter has been pending in court since 3 November 2016, when the high court agreed to hear the application, after the court saw that Polye had standing or the legal right to challenge the government’s decision in obtaining that loan.

However, Polye has not given any instructions to his lawyer, Loani Henao, since March this year regarding the case.

Refugee to ask court for bail

 He is seeking bail in the National Court after he was arrested and charged with two more charges under the Migration Act on April 4.

The 21 year old refugee was taken to the Waigani Police Station on the afternoon of April 4, straight from his court trial at the Waigani District Court by police and Immigration officials.

He was then charged for making False Representation under section 16(1)(e) of the Migration act.

He has been held in custody at the Waigani Police station since his arrest.
