Somare case deferred

ANGORAM MP Arthur Somare's judicial review challenging his referral to the leadership tribunal has been adjourned yesterday to Monday, The National reports.
Presiding judge Justice Panuel Mogish said he did not have the files for the case.
The review was to have been listed yesterday.
Somare's lawyer Ian Molloy disrupted Mogish's hearing of criminal matters to have the matter heard.
But Mogish said he had other matters to deal with and that the file was not before him.
The matter is in relation to Somare being referred to the leadership tribunal.
The argument in the review was to question the legal powers that acting public prosecutor Camillus Sambua exercised in appointing state prosecutor Katwa Umpake to sign the referral
