A senior teacher has been granted interim injunction by the Employment Court in Suva to continue in an acting position.Anil Prasad will continue as acting principal for Vunimono High School in Nausori until December 2018.

He had sought an injunction for a stay of an action by the Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts over the non-renewal of his contract as principal.

The granting of the injunction would allow the Employment Court to make its decision on the substantive grievances.

Mr Kumar, through his lawyer Damodaran Nair, had sought the injunction.

Justice Anjila Wati ruled: “I devise my powers to order that by consent Mr A. Prasad to remain in Acting Principal Large position in Vunimono High School until December 2018.”

“This now means the need to hear the stay application is eradicated,” she said.

“The main application needs to be heard as soon as possible and that would be done on paper.

“Main applications – Affidavit in reply to Originating Summons to be filed and served within 28 days. Right to reply to response with 21 days.”

The court will sit again on July 3.
