Kramer welcomes NICTA extension

Member for Madang, Bryan Kramer has welcomed the decision by NICTA and the minister for Communication, Information-Technology and Energy Sam Basil to extend the sim registration exercise for another two months.

Kramer said prior to the extension, he had drafted proper applications for filing in court.

He was to file the proper proceeding on Wednesday afternoon, intending to seek a further stay application this morning.

However with the decision to extend yesterday, there was no longer an urgency in the matter.

The second issue he was intending to do was file a Supreme Court reference.

“So these issues I’ve discussed with lawyers and we are going to prepare and draft now the extension has gone to the 31st July, that gives me time to actually sit down and prepare to file proper proceedings to go before the Supreme court, to get the Supreme Court’s interpretation on whether the regulation is unconstitutional and null and void,” Kramer said.
