THE magistrates court will not make any comments on the issuance of a certificate of no appeal, issued by one of its magistrates Easter Lelapitu, recently.
The certificate was issued in favour of Asia Pacific Investment Development Ltd (APID), only to be revoked later by a principal magistrate Jim Seuika.
This was in relation to APID’s controversial land acquisition process, which is being described by West Rennel landowners as “fraudulent”.
“We will not make any comments at the moment on the matter because there are cases pending in the courts.
“So we were directed by chief magistrate to wait for the courts to decide on the issue. That should put an end to speculations.”
