HONIARA, Solomon Islands (SIBC, Feb. 12) – The Solomon Islands expect to get assistance from Papua New Guinea in the area of judiciary to further strengthen its institutional capacity.

A Memorandum of Understanding between governments of both countries will be developed to accommodate and facilitate the assistance program.

These were confirmed by two visiting PNG senior judiciary officials.

PNG's Chief Magistrate John Numapo and Deputy Chief Magistrate Stephen Oli are currently in the country making calls and having talks with various judicial and legal personnel in Honiara.

The two men had also paid a visit to the Chief Justice Albert Palmer earlier this week.

Their visit to Honiara seeks to explore ways to assist the Magistracy and the Magistrates Court in Solomon Islands, in the provision of senior magistrates to strengthen and build Solomon Islands' institutions.

The PNG Chief Magistrate Mr Numapo said discussions over the past few days have been very fruitful.
