Lord Tu’ivakanō and his legal defence team have been granted another adjournment.
This is a court case that was meant to be heard on June 25 and has already been delayed thrice.
The king’s noble and former Prime Minister’s trial was rescheduled to July 30.
The adjournment was requested to allow the Defence more time to prepare for the trial.
The former Speaker has been charged with numerous crimes, including making a false statement for the purpose of obtaining a passport, perjury, acceptance of bribery and money laundering after he was arrested on March 1.
The Tongatapu’s No. 1 Noble’s Representative to Parliament first appeared at the Magistrate court on March 2 where his case was postponed until March 26.
It was again postponed until May 30.
