PM LILO WON APPEAL AGAINST HIGH COURT ORDER
Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo has won his appeal against a High Court order for him to disclose all financial records of how he spent the Gizo-Kolombangara Constituency’s Development Funds.
The Court of Appeal last Friday ruled, the application filed by Danny Kennedy and others against Mr Lilo have no reasonable prospect to succeed in its present form and the application should be struck out.
The Court ruled that whether Mr Kennedy and others have a viable claim against Mr Lilo, this can only be determined on material placed before the Court establishing a clear basis for the claim.
Mr Kennedy filed the case against Mr Lilo in 2012 for him to disclose financial records and other documentary evidence of how he spent, used, managed or administered the Rural Constituency Development Funds, Millennium Funds, Micro Project Livelihood, Tsunami Funds and other public funds from 2002-2012 and thereafter.
