League AGM in jeopardy with Highlands leagues case to be heard today

Source: The National, Monday 21st November 2011
THE 19 Highlands rugby league associations have challenged the validity of the PNGRFL AGM and will be heard by Justice Ambeng Kandakasi at 1.30pm today.
The matter which went before Justice Kandakasi last Thursday was adjourned to today to enable all parties in the proceedings to be available for the hearing of the urgent application filed by the Highlands leagues.
It sought to nullify the requirements and notice of the AGM and its failure to comply with the PNGRFL constitution and the initial National court orders.
Highlands leagues spokesman Sandis Tsaka said the legal proceedings arose from the failure of the interim board to respond to its petition with regard to the new requirements introduced by the interim board which were unconstitutional.
“Further to these, contempt proceedings have been filed against the PNGRFL interim board for failure to comply with the National court orders to be heard by Justice Murray at 1.30 pm tomorrow.”
Meanwhile as of the close of business last Friday, only three nominations had reached the PNGRFL office.
Current interim chairman John Numapo and Eric Kuman have been nominated for the chairman’s position while former Kumuls coach Bob Bennett was nominated for the deputy chairman’s position.
PNGRFL acting general manager Ivan Ravu said he was in the process of confirming properly affiliated leagues through bank statements for the AGM scheduled for Saturday in Lae.
The affiliation fee was raised by the interim board this year to K1,500
