The National, Tuesday 15th November 2011

ALL three judges appointed by the National Executive Council to investigate misconduct allegations against Chief Justice Sir Salamo Injia have declined their appointment.
The tribunal, appointed last Thursday to investigate the allegations against Sir Salamo, comprised former judge Paul Akuram as chairman together with justices Collin Makail and George Manuhu.
Akuram and Manuhu reportedly declined their appointment as stated by Papua New Guinea Law Society president Kerenga Kau in The National newspaper yesterday.
Makail, who is Mt Hagen resident judge, in a signed media statement yesterday said he had declined his appointment as a member of the tribunal because of a conflict of interest.
