Wednesday, November 28, 2012

SUVA lawyer Aseri Vakaloloma will appeal against a decision by Justice Paul Madigan after he was fined $200 for delaying court proceedings in the High Court.

The proceedings in the case of four Asians charged for human trafficking was scheduled for 10am on November 23 but because Mr Vakaloloma, who is representing one of the four accused, was late to court, the case began 20 minutes later.

The order was issued for Mr Vakaloloma to pay his fine before Friday.

Mr Vakaloloma said he was attending another case and was unable to make it on time.
