Vanuatu Daily News Digest | 3 day “stay” on motion

Parliament Speaker Pipite’s appeal against the Supreme Court’s judgement that he illegally closed Parliament last time was granted a “stay” order late yesterday of just over two days. Pipite’s legal team has until 12 noon Thursday July 2 to try to put forward a case. It was agreed yesterday evening, by consent of the lawyers of both sides, that if the appeal has not been determined by 12 noon on Thursday, the Parliament sitting must be re-instated by the Speaker by 4 pm Thursday 2 July. Daily Post has the late arriving story on page 3. Radio Vanuatu News this morning did not mention the case.

The rest of the Digest news for today will follow later.
