PM terminates minister
By Godwin Ligo t he M iniSter
J uStice
and Community Services, Ralph Regenvanu, was terminated as State Minister by Prime Minister Sato Kilman at around 3.30pm yesterday. Speaking to Daily Post just an hour after receiving his letter of termination, the Port Vila MP and former minister of justice said the reason given in his letter of termination by the prime minister was because of not being
loyal to the present government which leads the majority. In an answer to Daily Post question as to his advice to his supporters in Port Vila town, the outgoing minister and Port Vila MP replied: “I am looking forward for the 2012 elections.” On the question of whether the decision taken by the prime minister was in relation to the World Trade Organization (WTO) issues, Regen-
vanu replied that it could be but the exact content of the letter did not specify. The former minister of justice was about to attend a ceremony with custom chiefs in Port Vila to hand over an office space to the chiefs to use to carry out liaison work on the relation between Vanuatu and the South Seas Islanders in Australia when he received his termination letter from the prime minister. He told the gathering of
the custom chiefs including Port Vila MP David Abel and , MP for Malekula, Paul Telukluk, that he cannot proceed with the ceremony as he was no longer a state minister but that he will continue to support the cause for the south seas islanders. Many custom chiefs and some women leaders were also present yesterday afternoon for the ceremony when the Port Vila MP told them he has been terminated.

Kawenu dispute reaches court
By Bob Makin the workS proceeding
Kawenu Beach have been stopped until later today (Tuesday) by Justice Dudley Aru to give the project management time to answer objections to the works raised by the families Sope, Saurei and Bakokoto. Monday morning Justice Aru heard Mr John Malcolm for the claimants in chambers. Mr Malcolm made it clear his submission does not refer to lease 11/OF12/003 issued to Terra Holdings, only to adjacent custom land to which the defendant can have no claim. Ownership has never been decided in a court. The claimants maintain that bulldozing is proceeding beyond the narrow strip of land which is defined by lease title 11/OF12/003 - land outside the municipal boundary. They are seeking a court order to immediately halt the works. Defendants Terra Holdings said they were given insufficient time for a response, only being served the case submission late on Friday. >>To Page 4
