PNG Supreme Court dis­misses case against Marape

Fiji Sun - - AUST/NZ/PACIFIC NEWS -

Port Moresby: Pa­pua New Guinea’s Supreme Court has dis­missed a case filed by Belden Namah ques­tion­ing the con­sti­tu­tion­al­ity of James Marape’s elec­tion as Prime Min­is­ter last year and says Mr Namah is still sus­pended as an MP.

The Na­tional news­pa­per re­ported the court had ruled Mr Namah was “sus­pended from duty” when he was re­ferred to the Lead­er­ship Tri­bunal in Oc­to­ber 2017 for mis­con­duct in of­fice. The five-man Supreme Court bench ruled the stay or­der on the Lead­er­ship Tri­bunal did not stop Mr Namah’s sus­pen­sion.
