The PNG Judiciary and the Federal Court of Australia signed a fourth annexure at the closing of a Pacific Judicial Conference in Port Moresby last Thursday.
Chief Justice Sir Salamo Injia, on behalf of the PNG Judiciary, and Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Australia James Allsop, signed documents aimed at improving the performance of the judiciary in PNG.
“What’s contained in the annex is a list of activities that the two judiciaries will focus on in the next two years,” Sir Salamo said.
‘The first annex signed by Justice Michael Black (Federal Court of Australia) in Sydney when the first MOU (memorandum of understanding) was signed and there’ve been a number of annexes signed.”
The MOU sets out the general nature of the cooperative relationship and the annex to the MOU prescribes the specific projects to be undertaken in any given time frame.
Sir Salamo said that included the annexure signed between him and Allsop.
“So what we are about to sign now is the fourth annexure,” Sir Salamo said.
“As to what is contained in the annex, there are five activities that have been identified, that is the projects that will be carried out in this two years.
Sir Salamo thanked Justice Allsop for agreeing to have the annex signed at the closing of the conference.
