The National, Wednesday February 26th, 2014
FORMER deputy Police Commissioner Geoffery Vaki plans to pursue a contempt case he filed against Police Commissioner Tom Kulunga after the National Court ruled he failed to properly serve court documents on the latter.
Justice Colin Makail last Friday struck out the contempt case
that Vaki filed because he had
served the court documents on the Kulunga’s secretary instead of on him personally.
Makail ruled that the service of the documents on the secretary did not constitute a proper service within the National Court rules.
Vaki said he appreciated and understood what the judge meant.
The matter related to Kulunga’s failure to comply with a Court order issued on October 1, 2012 by Justice Nicholas Kirriwom.
The order upheld Vaki’s application for a judicial review of the decision to sack him, quashed the decision by the National Executive Council to revoke his appointment as Deputy Police Commissioner (Operations) and ordered his reinstatement.
