Won’t be home for Christmas

YAREN – Nauru opposition MP has rejected the justice minister’s testimony to the United Nations. Roland Kun had his passport cancelled in June following a protest outside parliament.

His appeal to the Supreme Court, to enable a visit to his family in New Zealand, has been delayed for months.

The Justice Minister David Adeang told the UN’s Universal Periodic Review process that Kun has been charged with offences, but Kun rejects that.

“That is absolute nonsense, there are no criminal charges laid against me. It’s been four months since Adeang has been talking about criminal charges and there hasn’t been any. “

“Police have not come to interview me. The government has cancelled my passport without processing through the judiciary because they don’t have any criminal charges.”

Kun says if he doesn’t get a hearing date by December, the court will close and he won’t be able to join his wife and children for Christmas. - RNZI
