A three-man panel of judges has reserved a decision on Patrick Pruaitch’s Leadership Tribunal to Friday this week.
The matter was listed for a decision this afternoon, at the Wagaini National Court however the panel, chaired by Justice Panuel Mogish was not ready with a decision today.
Justice Mogish when adjourning the matter said, there are a number of cases involving this Tribunal at the National and Supreme Courts in Port Moresby and the panel needs more time to reach a decision.
Initial submissions made last Friday by Pruaitch’s lawyer, Greg Sheppard was based on the unreasonable time it took for a Tribunal to be conducted into the allegations against Pruaitch.
These allegations involved claims of misappropriation dating back to 2003.
