UPNG Terminted Students

UPNG students seek judicial review of termination

The notice of motion filed on Sept 19 was allowed to be heard ex-parte (without the respondents) today after the court was satisfied that the motion filed was served to UPNG and the state and was urgent.

Lawyer representing the terminated students served the application to the office of the Secretary of Justice and Attorney General on Monday when it was filed.

The motion moved today seeks leave of the court to conduct a judicial review against the actions of the University Council when it permanently excluded the students from studies on Aug 29.
