COURT HEARING DATE TO BE SET FOR PORTS CEO CASE NEXT WEEK
The High Court will next week set a hearing date to hear a case against the Chief Executive Officer of Ports Authority for contempt of Court.
The Solomon Islands National Union of Workers filed the case on behalf of 16 workers the Ports CEO Collin Yow, terminated late April this year.
The Union claims Mr Yow refused to adhere to a High Court order for the workers to be reinstated.
The order was made after an urgent hearing by the High Court.
The Union also claims Mr Yow breached section 10 of the Trade Disputes Panel Act because he terminated the workers when the matter is still before the Trade Disputes Panel.
The hearing date will be set Thursday next week before Justice Leonard Maina.
