Tikoca Files An Application For Judicial Review

Tikoca Files An Application For Judicial Review
Suspended Opposition MP Isoa Tikoca.

Suspended Opposition Parliamentarian Isoa Tikoca has filed an application for leave to apply for a judicial review.

The application is challenging the decision that was made by Parliament to suspend Tikoca for the rest of the term till 2018.

Solicitor-General Sharvada Sharma, who was representing the Speaker of Parliament, has objected to the application.

Mr Sharma had made an application to stay to await the decision of Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu’s case as the same arguments were made in that case.

However Judge Justice Lyone Seneviratne said that he would not await that case decision as it was a separate matter.

Mr Sharma further informed the court that he would be filing a strike out application on the grounds that Tikoca is challenging Parliament proceedings.

The case has been adjourned to May 19, for mention.
