NATIONAL Court judge Justice Ambeng Kandakasi yesterday advised lawyers assisting in the PNGRFL matter to return to court tomorrow and advice the court on how to resolve the matter.
Justice Kandakasi said this after both lawyers of the disputing parties agreed that they would meet with their clients and discuss on how to resolve the matter before returning to court.
Former PNGRFL chairman Albert Veratau took the newly formed board under Gary Juffa and Bryan Kramer to court for allegedly calling a vote of no-confidence meeting without prior notice to him as the incumbent board chairman and other members of his board.
Veratau, through his lawyer, Edward Waifaf, successfully obtained interim restraining orders last Tuesday, stopping Kramer and others from entering the PNGRFL office premises and interfering with its management and affairs until the matter was decided in court.
Justice Kandakasi told parties to agree on a date for a proper annual general meeting and appoint board members as a means of solving the leadership wrangle.
He told parties to solve the matter among themselves first as such disputes could affect the wider interest of the rugby league in the country including the PNG NRL bid.
Justice Kandakasi further extended the interim restraining orders and told parties to return to court tomorrow to advise the court on the outcome of the discussions.
