THE FEDERAL COURT JUDGEMENT ON 5TH DECEMBER 2017
IN RESPECT OF THE MIC-RoS CASE
“It is a great day as the Court of Appeal decision was reversed. however, there are certain facts about the case which I need to provide clarity.
Our legal counsels felt that despite the 8 Plaintiffs withdrawing there was a need for the issue to be addressed at the level of the Federal Court to revisit the decisions of the Court of Appeal. It was a real and serious concern as the Court of Appeal decision could have serious consequences on political parties and government in the future.
I am happy that the Federal Court listened to the submissions of the lawyers of the defendants and made a decision to reverse the decision of the Court of Appeal and restore the decision of the High Court.
