‘Strike out’ Hearing Deferred

The lawyer from the Attorney-General’s Chambers yesterday filed an application to vacate the hearing for a strike out application.

This is in the case between the plaintiff, Fiji Peacekeeping and Action Trustee Association, and defendant, Minister for Home Affairs and Minister for Defence and Security and ORS (others), heard before a tribunal.

The plaintiff’s lawyer, Tevita Bukarau, yesterday asked the court for a short adjournment after the defendant’s lawyer had told the court that they have made an application to vacate the matter for hearing for the strike out application.

The plaintiff had applied for a peacekeepers claim for pay allowance by the United Nations between 1978 and 2002, to which the defendants had applied for a strike out application.

Mr Bukarau is opposing the strike application for which a new hearing date has been fixed for July 21. Mr Bukarau also sought cost from the defendants if the matter was to be vacated.

Master Vishwa Dutt Sharma also told the defendant’s lawyers that there would be a cost in cause and told both parties to file their simultaneous applications.

The case has been adjourned to July 21, for hearing.
