When an attempt to arrest the Opposition Leader failed yesterday, his lawyer filed an urgent application for an interim injunction.
The court granted the restraining order yesterday, preventing the arrest that was ordered by the Police Commissioner for Opposition Leader, Belden Namah.
Today both parties were represented in court.
Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill and the Police Commissioner were represented by Tiffany Nongorr.
Counsels for both parties made a submission for the judge to grant that the State’s score remains.
They requested for the judge to prevent any arrests from being carried out by both parties. Thus the court granted that both parties are now protected from any arrests.
The Opposition Leader’s legal representative gave his assurance that his client will be well advised to maintain peace and order.
After this adjournment, police will not be allowed to carry out arrests until the matter returns to court.
In this matter which returns on the 11th of February, Treasury Minister, Don Polye is the 6th defendant.
Counsel representing the Treasurer, John Napu, said his client will be affected in the cause of these proceedings.
Finance Minister, James Marape was also named as the 7th defendant in the case.
