Namah tribunal expected to sit tomorrow

This is the tribunal appointment that was announced on September 28 by Acting Chief Justice, Sir Gibbs Salika.

The appointment follows a request made by the Public Prosecutor, Pondros Kaluwin, in his letter to the Chief Justice on November 8, 2016.

A previous tribunal appointed against the leader has not progressed far, due to a Supreme Court Reference, which arose from the actual appointment process of the tribunal.

Sir Gibbs explained that this appointment is a new one, following a request by the Public Prosecutor.
