Polye trial begins
By JACOB POK (The National 30.04.08)
THE trial of the petition challenging the election of Works, Transport and Civil Aviation Minister Don Polye as Kandep MP starts today.
Last week the court found that there were grounds for this petition, filed by lawyer Alfred Manase, to go to trial.
Yesterday, Mr Polye’s lawyers asked Justice Greg Lay to delay the case for two weeks so they could prepare themselves.
But Paul Mawa, representing Mr Manase, objected to this, saying the trial should start in earnest.
Mr Mawa said they have more than 100 witnesses to call and if the case was deferred, it would cost them a lot of money.
Justice Lay agreed and set the matter down for this morning.The trial will commence on the allegation concerning eight disputed boxes.
Although Mr Polye polled thousands of votes over his nearest rival, there were still claims of foul play.
